The Building Energy Exchange (BE-Ex), in partnership with the NYC Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, invites building owners, designers, engineers, consultants, contractors, and others involved in energy efficiency retrofit projects to submit their projects for inclusion in our upcoming exhibit, Celebrate NYC, through our Call for Projects.

The Building Energy Exchange will be opening a larger, newly renovated, Center, in Fall 2017. In honor of this important milestone, BE-Ex will launch an exhibit celebrating New York City’s leadership in advancing building energy efficiency, and effective climate action.

Celebrate NYC will showcase energy efficient building renovations and retrofits, and will feature upgrades and improvement of existing buildings of all different sizes and purposes throughout New York City. BE-Ex plans to highlight a variety of system upgrades such as lighting, HVAC, envelope, controls, conveyance, and resilience upgrades. All types of buildings throughout New York City’s five boroughs are invited to be represented, including market rate and affordable residential buildings, commercial properties, as well as schools and universities. 

The exhibit will launch in congruence with the opening of BE-Ex’s expanded center in late Fall 2017. It will run for 9+ months and will be seen by the thousands of building professionals who visit the Building Energy Exchange Center. All participants will be acknowledged at a celebratory opening event.


The call for projects for this exhibit is open to the public. To have your project considered for inclusion, please share some basic information about yourself and your project through the form below. Multiple submittals are encouraged.


This exhibit will include as many appropriate projects as possible after consideration by our selection committee. If you have any questions, please contact Talia Kula at

This exhibit is made possible by the New York City Mayor's Office of Sustainability.
