Reducing our carbon footprint is the paramount challenge of our age, and buildings will play a critical role in creating a sustainable, resilient city. You can be part of the solution by joining our campaign. Creating a world class center for energy efficiency in New York City presents an opportunity for organizations, families, and individuals to demonstrate their commitment to combating climate change. 

We have already secured over $1M from New York City and State, and have launched our 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 and become a member of the project’s Founder’s Circle.

Founder's Circle

With events regularly over-flowing our capacity, the Building Energy Exchange has demonstrated the need for an objective venue for building decision makers and stakeholders to learn, see, discuss, and network. With over 11,000 visitors to over 400 programs, in just two years, our center’s reputation for providing actionable solutions through education, exhibitions, technology demonstrations, and research is well-established. But we are bursting at the seams.

The Center's expansion will feature:
  • 100+ seat classroom
  • Interactive exhibit and technology demonstration spaces
  • Additional educational and training facilities
Please partner with us to help realize our vision of a world-class energy efficiency center.
