ABOUT THE EVENT
The New York City Mayor’s Office of Sustainability and City Council have enacted several ambitious initiatives to reduce carbon emissions and improve energy efficiency for the city’s existing buildings. At the forefront is the new Climate Mobilization Act, which aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 through these emissions reductions and other means. In this presentation, we will review existing and proposed legislation for New York City and explore its potential effects on existing buildings. We will discuss different approaches for retrofitting existing building systems to reduce carbon emissions and review strategies for improving energy efficiency. We will also explore computer modeling tools used to assess the effects of several different approaches to improving energy efficiency and meeting code and legislative requirements.
After attending this seminar, participants will be able to:
- Summarize the new energy efficiency and carbon emissions requirements for existing buildings in New York City.
- Identify different options for existing buildings to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
- Describe different computer modeling tools available to analyze different options for improving energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions of existing buildings.
- Analyze penalties for existing buildings that do not meet carbon emission reduction requirements.
