New York City's Local Law 87 requires all buildings over 50,000 square feet to conduct an energy audit and retro-commissionning study every 10 years, and to submit an Energy Efficiency Report to the NYC Department of Buildings documenting the results.

Attend this free one-hour training presentation that explains the law and how to comply. We'll explain how conducting energy audits and retro-commissioning can help you identify large cost saving opportunities, as well as inform decisions on capital plans and equipment investments.

Concrete Ways to Capture Carbon

Concrete is the most commonly used building material in the world, and the second most used substance after water. Its central ingredient, Portland cement, is a leading source of global industrial emissions—and demand for cement is on track to grow 23 percent by 2050. However, through multiple processes and technological breakthroughs, concrete also has the extraordinary potential to store carbon in mineral form, locking away emissions that would otherwise end up in the atmosphere. 

This panel will feature representatives from both established and emerging companies pioneering carbon capture and utilization (CCU) in the cement and concrete sectors. Panelists will discuss the technical dimensions, climate impact and real world applications of their CCU offerings; the state of the market for carbon-based concrete alternatives; and the critical role of public policy in accelerating progress.

Benchmarking Report

Addressing climate change means addressing the energy used in buildings. Two-thirds of New York City’s greenhouse gas emissions come from this sector, and the city needed reliable data to create effective policy to reduce emissions and track progress. Enter benchmarking.

Large and midsize buildings are responsible for over half of NYC’s building emissions, or 34 percent of the citywide total. Urban Green’s latest research, New York City’s 2020 Energy and Water Use Report, evaluates the energy used by NYC’s large buildings and whether they’re on track to meet the city’s climate goals. Hear from experts about our findings and participate in the discussion through our Q&A.

Ching, author and illustrator of the seminal Building Construction Illustrated, first teamed up in 2014 to present a fully illustrated guide to the theory and practice of sustainable design. Ian M. Shapiro’s green building expertise started with hands-on energy efficiency work, grew into a broad analytical understanding of the field and is now focused on the immediate practical challenge of electrifying everything.
