The Building Energy Exchange has achieved tremendous success, and the needs of our community have literally outgrown our current space. Fortunately, this month we will be breaking ground on an exciting expansion project. We have already secured over $1M from New York City and State, and we have launched a capital campaign to raise an additional $500,000 for this project. 

We invite you to join our campaign by making a one-time, tax-deductible contribution to this project in order to become a member of the campaign's Founders Circle. 

Founder's Circle

The Building Energy Exchange is committed to achieving New York's climate action plans. Buildings are responsible for 70% of New York City's carbon pollution, and this project will ensure our community has the tools to make our buildings more efficient, resilient, and affordable. The Founder's Circle will be comprised of individuals, companies, and organizations with a deep commitment of the future of New York. With over 11,000 visitors to over 450 programs in just two years, the benefits and popularity of our Center have become clear. And we are bursting at the seams. With events regularly overflowing our capacity, the Building Energy Exchange has proven the need for more exhibit and demonstration space.

The Center's expansion will feature:
  • 100+ seat classroom
  • Interactive exhibit and technology demonstration spaces
  • Additional educational and training facilities
