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

Event Prices: 
General Admission
Free Admission

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.

Green roofs and walls have a vast but unrealized potential to address many of the fundamental challenges facing New York City. For the first time, CitiesAlive is heading to NYC where delegates will partake in technical sessions directed towards design, research and policy communities. The focus will be on the latest scientific research, design, products, and policies, with tours of cutting-edge projects, research facilities and other sites not typically open to the general public.

Technical Working Group: Feedback Session

Event Prices: 
Member
Free Admission
Non-member
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 one other option:

  • Wednesday, July 15 at RAMSA 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.
