Energy and preservation policy in NYC

New York City is full of existing and historic buildings that need upgrades to achieve higher energy performance and reduce their carbon footprint while preserving their historic character.

Urban Green is proud to kick off our Energy Upgrades in Historic Buildings series with this first session featuring a discussion with key players in energy and preservation policy in New York City. Panelists will discuss city policies relating to historic buildings and how Local Law 97 affects building energy upgrades.

Future events in this series will explore the intersection of historic preservation and sustainability through policy and research discussions, as well as case studies of both pre- and post-war projects.
