Propose a Conference Session for BuildingEnergy NYC

The Conference Chairs for Building Energy NYC 2019 (September 26) invite you to propose education and workshop sessions in support of this year's conference theme: Electrification. The deadline to submit is April 18.

Proposals will be reviewed and vetted by a volunteer NESEA Member committee to ensure that sessions are data-driven, diverse, and genuinely useful.

Electrification has been identified as a key component of 80% GHG reduction by 2050 and has transformative implications for the building industry. How does it affect design, construction, related policies, technology, operations, user engagement, and community equity in your project? The Conference Chairs also seek proposals that address solutions when electrification is not possible, including other solutions for CO2 reduction.
