JANUARY 27: IS NYC READY TO ELECTRIFY?

With a groundbreaking bill to prohibit fossil fuels in most new construction set for a vote in New York City Council today, 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!

Read the report, and join us on January 27!

CITY COUNCIL TO VOTE ON GAS BILL

The New York City Council will vote today on 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. 

Urban Green helped shape the bill, including as lead witness of 100 people testifying at the City Council hearing on November 17. Read our written testimony to see how our recommendations were incorporated into the final bill.


You can follow along with the proceedings here, and stay tuned for updates throughout the day!
