What’s New in the 2020 NYC Energy Code is a free 90-minute online class designed to cover the major updates in the 2020 NYCECC and how it relates to NYC’s Local Law 97. This class is recommended for a range of design and building professionals, from principals to expediters.

By the end of this course, participants will:

  • Identify specific provisions that need attention to due to increased stringency;
  • Recognize the changes in the 2020 NYCECC that will have a substantial effect on how buildings are designed and constructed;
  • Understand the relationship between the 2020 NYCECC and the carbon cap for building energy required under NYC LL97;
  • Understand the rationale behind the eventual transition from energy to carbon regulation.

Each What’s New in the NYC Code online course is live and interactive, led by a certified instructor with more than seven years of professional building or design experience, a passion for sustainability, and in-depth knowledge of the green building industry.
