Join us for a panel of building owners, operators, and energy consultants, as we discuss our latest report: Spending Through the Roof. Panelists will discuss the root of a problem that costs an estimated $11 million a year in wasted energy, caused by vent openings in elevator shafts that leak heated air throughout the winter. Come hear how to identify the scope of the problem and implement fixes, as well as details of other highly innovative air-sealing projects that have been completed in NYC high-rises.

6:00 - 6:30 PM   Registration and Reception
6:30 - 8:00 PM   Panel Discussion 

Special thanks to our event partners 32BJ and REBNY.
