9:00 am to 10:30 am
Join the Building Energy Exchange along with major sustainability leaders in New York real estate, Vornado Realty Trust and The Durst Organization, for a discussion of some of the mechanical system upgrades within their portfolios of extra-large commercial buildings that have recently and dramatically improved energy efficiency and tenant engagement.
Speakers will include Karen Oh, Director of Energy Solutions at Vornado and Ron Jerman, Vice President of Operations at Durst, who will speak to base building improvements at 909 Third Avenue and 4 Times Square, respectively.
Through a wide range of system upgrades — including lighting controls, HVAC, water, conveyance, as well as EMS and BMS — these properties evidence the significant potential for energy efficiency improvements in large commercial space.
Celebrate NYC is a program series sponsored by National Grid, showcasing some of the most prominent energy efficient building renovations and retrofits included in the Celebrate NYC exhibit, currently on display at the Building Energy Exchange.
