NYC's High Performance Retrofit Program and Resources

NYC recently passed legislation that zeroes in on the need for existing buildings to drastically improve their energy and emissions performance. The NYC Retrofit Accelerator, in collaboration with the Building Energy Exchange, is creating new resources as part of its High Performance Retrofit Track that will help building decision-makers meet these aggressive goals, a critical part of the City’s plan to reduce citywide GHG emissions 80% by 2050 (80x50). Speakers will provide an overview of NYC’s Climate Mobilization Act and the NYC Retrofit Accelerator’s High Performance Track, present new resources for deep energy retrofits including technology primers created specifically for building owners and decision-makers, and provide a case study of an exemplary project that has completed a high performance retrofit project.
