New York City Council has passed the Climate Mobilization Act – a groundbreaking package of bills designed to dramatically improve the carbon footprint of buildings across New York City.
The centerpiece of the Act is a law that will require buildings above 25,000 square feet to meet strict greenhouse gas emissions limits starting in 2024. Among the first of its kind in the country, the bill is expected to reduce cumulative building emissions 40% citywide by 2030 through retrofits in about 75% of large buildings. In addition, the Act establishes a new, City-based Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program to enable retrofits through long-term financing, and requires the installation of solar PV and green roofs on certain NYC buildings.
Join the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, the NYC Retrofit Accelerator and the Building Energy Exchange to learn about this historic legislation. Find out how the laws will affect buildings across the City. Hear from experts directly involved in the development of the legislation and those charged with its implementation to understand how NYC’s Green New Deal will impact your real estate portfolio. Most importantly, learn about the resources available through NYC Retrofit Accelerator, Building Energy Exchange and NYCEEC to help your building reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and comply with new requirements.
This event will be the first in a 2019 series hosted by the Building Energy Exchange, developed in concert with the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, to discuss the components of the Climate Mobilization Act and connect industry stakeholders to resources that will ensure owners and occupants benefit from these new requirements.
