This is the full program of Better Steam Heat: Upgrades & Resident Engagement on March 29, 2017. For more videos, navigate to Event Resources above.
Join BE-Ex and the NYC Retrofit Accelerator for a
presentation on steam system upgrades that resolve under- and over-heating
problems, quiet clanging pipes, and reduce operating and maintenance costs. Findings
will be presented from a new case study on a 400-unit co-op’s successful steam system
upgrade, followed by a moderated discussion with the project team.
Panelists will discuss the process and challenges of completing
the upgrades, including how they designed the scope of work, secured project
approval, accessed financial incentives, and tracked project outcomes. The team
will also discuss how they engaged residents to build project buy-in and
schedule in-unit work.
The NYC Retrofit Accelerator will present on lessons learned
from their Better Steam Heat campaign, and on best practices for resident
engagement. Following the presentation, an Efficiency Advisor from the Retrofit
Accelerator will be on hand to answer questions and offer guidance to building
decision-makers interested in completing steam system upgrades.
