High Performance Technology Primers (Tech Primers)

The Tech Primers and Participant Profiles were developed in partnership with the High Performance Retrofit Track of the New York City Retrofit Accelerator, which helps building decision-makers create and implement a 10-15 year capital plan to improve energy efficiency by 40-60%. Connect with one of their advisors today to discuss what High Performance may mean for your building.
