Energy Upgrades in Historic Buildings

The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Fifth Avenue is over two million square feet, spans four city blocks and houses more than 1.5 million pieces of art. As the largest art museum in the United States, The Met faces unique challenges as it looks to reduce energy use while preserving its collection of timeless artifacts.

On February 2, join us for the second event in our Energy Upgrades in Historic Buildings series, featuring a case study of the iconic museum. Representatives from The Met will be joined by architects and engineers working on various projects there, from replacing the museum's skylights to restoring its sloping windows. Together, they'll share creative ways to reduce energy use in a historic building.

New York City is full of existing and historic buildings that need upgrades to achieve higher energy performance and reduce their carbon footprint while preserving their historic character.

Urban Green is proud to kick off our Energy Upgrades in Historic Buildings series with this first session featuring a discussion with key players in energy and preservation policy in New York City. Panelists will discuss city policies relating to historic buildings and how Local Law 97 affects building energy upgrades.

Future events in this series will explore the intersection of historic preservation and sustainability through policy and research discussions, as well as case studies of both pre- and post-war projects.

Thank you to Con Edison for sponsoring this event
