As part of the State of New York’s ambitions to achieve a carbon-neutral economy by mid-century, NYSERDA initiated the Buildings of Excellence (BOE) Design Competition for multifamily new construction and deep renovation projects. The results from the first two rounds of BOE awards give insight into achieving higher levels of building performance in terms of energy savings, carbon reductions, and other co-benefits. They provide data on how to manage costs, effectiveness of technology, etc. and offer replicable models for others to follow. This interactive session is designed to focus on audience perspectives and questions as we delve into projects, trends, and best practice recommendations.
