RETROFITTING TO SCALE: 50,000 BUILDINGS IN 10 YEARS

In the near future, New York City will likely require that buildings larger than 25,000 square feet reduce their energy consumption. To comply with these regulations, building retrofits will have to occur on a scale never before experienced in NYC—or anywhere else.  

The city’s largest energy retrofit firms only complete 50 or so large projects annually. The NYC Retrofit Accelerator, the city’s designated program to facilitate building retrofits, is on track to complete 1,500 projects over three years. In comparison, the policies under consideration in NYC would require 5,000 building retrofits each year.

Retrofitting to Scale will explore solutions for NYC and other metro areas. What are the barriers to upgrading buildings now? What must change to make scaling retrofits feasible? What business opportunities will emerge? We will explore these questions over three thought-provoking sessions.

SESSION 1: GREATEST OPPORTUNITIES

The first session will identify building systems that have the most potential for efficiency and assess effective energy reduction strategies.

SESSION 2: INNOVATIONS AND EXAMPLES OF SCALE

New technologies, practices and business models are being piloted to reduce energy consumption on a large scale. In this session, industry experts will present how state-of-the-art innovations can help achieve scalability and reduce costs.

SESSION 3: SCALING IT UP

Are cost-effective, fast and high-quality retrofits possible? Leading building retrofit experts will discuss the challenges and potential solutions to scaling retrofits.
