LOCAL LAW 97 AMENDMENTS PASSED


The City Council recently passed “technical amendments” to the building emissions law.

Among minor corrections, four changes stand out: clarification that DOB can revise 2030 standards by rule, including using a different metric; carbon emissions from electricity can now be based on time of use; credits for GHG offsets and energy storage will extend to later compliance periods; and some previously exempt affordable housing must now comply with the prescriptive path of low-cost energy savings measures.

For more details, see the revised law here and our updated resources.
