Last week, the New York City Council passed groundbreaking legislation that will phase fossil fuels out of most new construction starting in 2024. This bill means most new buildings will be all-electric and emit less carbon, all while improving local air quality and making occupants more comfortable.
Just a few hours ago, the bill was signed into law, and Urban Green CEO John Mandyck was invited to say a few words. You can learn more about the law here, and read his full remarks from today's signing.
Urban Green's latest research report, Grid Ready, is particularly timely in examining how the grid will handle accelerated electrification.
On January 27, hear from experts about our findings and what they mean for NYC's buildings. We'll also be joined by Doreen Harris, President and CEO of NYSERDA, and Vicki Kuo, Vice President of Energy Efficiency and Distributed Resource Planning at Con Edison. They'll answer all your questions about the grid, electrification and planning for a winter peak!
