EVENT DESCRIPTION

New York City Council just passed the most ambitious climate legislation for buildings enacted by any city in the world. This historic law sets tough carbon emissions caps for energy use in NYC’s largest buildings starting in 2024. The new legislation impacts about 50,000 buildings and will lead to thousands of building retrofits each year.

To comply with these regulations, building retrofits will have to occur on a scale never before experienced in NYC—or anywhere else.  

Retrofitting to Scale will explore solutions for NYC and other metro areas. What are the barriers to upgrading buildings now? What must change to make scaling retrofits feasible? What business opportunities will emerge? We will explore these questions over three thought-provoking sessions.
