Free Admission

Urban Green Council is serving as Strategic Advisor to Mayor de Blasio’s Technical Working Group (TWG), along with Real Estate Board of New York. The TWG supports One City Built to Last, the Mayor’s plan for medium- and long-term building energy reductions.

To effectively implement One City, it’s essential to identify and address existing barriers to energy retrofits and new construction, such as state or local regulations, tenant-landlord relationships, real estate market structures, and costs. John Lee from the Mayor's Office has asked us to solicit industry feedback about these barriers.

As a stakeholder, you and up to one colleague are invited to attend one of our special advisory meetings.

In addition to this date, we have two other options:

  • Wednesday, July 15 at RAMSA from 8:30 am to 10:00 am
  • Wednesday, July 29 at BKSK from 8:30 am to 10:00 am

Please note that we are capping attendance at 25 people per meeting, so sign up early to secure a spot.

If you have questions about the meetings, please contact Marin Schloss at ms@urbangreencouncil.org.

NY15 Passive House Conference & Expo

Event Prices: 
General Admission
$225
NYPH Member Admission
$155
Student Admission
$75

Mayor Bill de Blasio, by announcing his policy to reduce city-wide carbon emissions in One City: Built to Last, has set the course for effective climate change mitigation and resilient adaptation. Passive House is the one building standard that reliably and affordably delivers deep cuts in energy use proportionate to our climate challenge, while providing increased comfort, indoor health and climate resilience.

Join leading local and global Passive House practitioners for a one day event that will demonstrate how Passive House retrofits and new construction will help achieve New York City’s carbon reduction goals. An expo will showcase over 30 leading high-performance product and service providers.

Urban Green's Director of Policy, Laurie Kerr, will participate in the closing session, "Policy, Passive House and a Resilient New York Future", for a lively discussion on the role Passive House can and should play in meeting Mayor de Blasio's 80% by 2050 carbon reduction goals.

LL87 & LL88: How to Get Value from Doing the Work

Continuing Education Credits

GBCI:
Approved for 1.0 CE Hour
AIA CES:
Approved for 1.0 HSW/LU Hour
Event Prices: 
General Admission
Free Admission

Registration for this event has now closed, but walk-ins are welcome to come and join us for back to back presentations about two important local laws.

New York City's Local Law 87 requires all buildings over 50,000 square feet to conduct an energy audit and retro-commissioning study every 10 years, and to submit an Energy Efficiency Report to the NYC Department of Buildings documenting the results. The good news is that doing the work can help you identify large cost saving opportunities, as well as inform decisions on capital plans and equipment investments. 

Local Law 88 requires non-residential buildings over 50,000 square feet (and residential buildings with commercial tenants over 10,000 square feet) to upgrade their lighting systems and install sub-meters for commercial tenants. The law goes into effect in 2025, but owners who don’t upgrade lighting and install sub-meters during lease turnover now will disrupt tenants later––and spend more money to do the work.

Attend this free, combined presentation that explains the laws, how to comply and how to get the most value from doing the work.

SCHEDULE

6:00 - 7:00 PM   Local Law 87
7:00 - 7:30 PM   Local Law 88

Come for one or stay for both! Can't make either? View upcoming presentations for LL87 and LL88. Want a private training for your organization? Contact us.

LL88: Lighting Upgrades & Sub-Metering

Event Prices: 
General Admission
Free Admission

New York City's Local Law 88 requires large non-residential buildings to upgrade their lighting systems and install tenant meters. The law goes into effect in 2025, but owners who don’t upgrade lighting and install sub-meters during lease turnover now will disrupt tenants later -- and spend more money to do the work. In addition, by upgrading lighting systems today, owners will start saving energy and money sooner. 

Attend this free training presentation to learn more about Local Law 88 and how to comply. We'll explain how upgrading lighting systems and installing sub-meters can help building owners and operators save money and incentivize tenants to save energy.

This training follows a free LL87: Energy Audits & Retro-Commissioning presentation from 1:00 - 2:00pm at the same venue. Come for both!

Can't make this date? Visit our Local Law 88 page for future trainings.
