ELECTRIFICATION COMMITTEE NOW IN SESSION

Late last year, Urban Green Council launched Advancing Electrification, a roadmap for scaling heat pumps in NYC's large multifamily buildings. In Year 1 we’re developing priorities through stakeholder convenings and in-depth research; in Year 2, we will advance to implementation strategies, such as incentives and stakeholder education.

We were pleased to host our first major convening last week: the inaugural meeting of the 32-member Advancing Electrification Advisory Committee. With the Committee’s help, we’ll be taking a comprehensive look at the current capabilities of heat pumps and the challenges of installing them in large residential buildings.

A critical component to NYC’s long-term emissions reductions, building electrification includes shifting heating and hot water systems to electrical technologies such as heat pumps. This transition is especially important in the multifamily sector, which accounts for more than 30 percent of the city’s carbon emissions from buildings. This groundbreaking work is funded by The Rosin Fund of the Scherman Foundation and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
