Electrifying a 100-Year-Old NYC Pre-War Multifamily Building

During this session you will learn about an important moderate-income multifamily building in New York City that went through a major transformation to electrify its heating and hot water, resulting in dramatic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Project stakeholders will review the entire project design process, installation process, highlight lessons learned, and discuss the environmental, energy, and comfort impacts to the building and its occupants. Through an overview of this leading electrification project, learn how to replicate these results while avoiding pitfalls and challenges for this important part of NYC's building stock.
