The Building Energy Exchange (BE-Ex) connects New York City’s real estate and design communities to energy and lighting efficiency solutions through education, exhibitions, technology demonstrations, and research. We identify opportunities, navigate barriers to adoption, broker relationships, and showcase best practices at our resource center in the Surrogate’s Courthouse.

Current Exhibit: Celebrate NYC

BE-Ex presents Celebrate NYC, an exhibit celebrating the leadership of the New York City real estate community in advancing building energy efficiency and effective climate action. Celebrate NYC showcases 60 energy efficiency retrofit projects. These projects represent all kinds of buildings across New York City’s boroughs, and feature a wide variety of energy upgrades.


Case Study: Fashion Institute of Technology

The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), a leading art and design school in New York City, has made impressive strides to reduce its energy and carbon footprints. By implementing an energy efficiency master plan and integrating it into the college’s capital planning process, FIT has reduced energy use by 50% and carbon emissions by 55% over the last twelve years, yielding more than $3.1 million in annual savings.


Expansion of the Exchange

Our recent renovation and expansion project has transformed the Exchange into a 21st century paragon for energy efficiency education and knowledge sharing. Featuring a 100-seat state-of-the-art classroom and sophisticated exhibit and technology demonstration spaces, the center is available to BE-Ex corporate members and the public.
