ANNOUNCING STUDIO URBAN GREEN!

Covid-19 will likely be behind us in the not-too-distant future, but online training and meetings are clearly here to stay. With that in mind, we’re launching Studio Urban Green to optimize the quality of our online offerings.

We’re repurposing our offices in Lower Manhattan as a broadcast space that will initially host Urban Green Live episodes, and eventually add panel discussions and other programming to be livestreamed to remote attendees and one day a live studio audience. With higher production values, greater interactivity, and new media pros, we hope to provide a better experience no matter how you join us.

BUILDING LETTER GRADES START OCT 1

Tomorrow, large building owners will receive Energy Efficiency Rating labels that can be accessed in the DOB NOW Public Portal. Aimed at making efficiency information more accessible to the public, the labels will include a letter grade and the building’s energy efficiency score grades according to Energy Star.

Grades will be assigned annually, and all covered buildings are required to print and display these labels in a visible location near each public entrance by October 31 every year. For a first look at how these new grades are distributed across sectors, tune into our virtual Gala for a sneak peek of our benchmarking report!

The goal of the program is to support real estate portfolio owners of tall buildings in their effort to achieve carbon neutrality while fostering partnerships between owners, developers, manufacturers, and solution providers.

NYSERDA will be hosting an informational webinar tomorrow, October 1.
