2017 | It's Electrifying: Exploring NYC’s Climate Plan to Electrify Buildings

October 4, 2017 

Three years ago, New York committed to reducing citywide carbon emissions 80 percent by 2050. The framework included three components:

1. Cut building energy use in half,
2. Green the grid (make the grid carbon neutral), and
3. Electrify systems to reduce fossil fuel use in buildings. 

However, the path to achieving all three legs by 2050 is cluttered with uncertainty, raising more questions than answers. When is the right time to electrify building systems? Which technologies will we be seeing more of? Who will do the work?

Urban Green’s 2017 Conference will feature a robust dialogue on emerging energy and building technologies. Industry experts will examine the central assumptions about how we'll build and operate our buildings over the coming decades.

What is building electrification, and why is it important to discuss now? Our Executive Director explains.
