(re)Launching the NY Energy Efficiency Center of Excellence


Please join Building Energy Exchange and the New York City Mayor’s Office for the formal opening of our newly expanded energy efficiency center of excellence. Doubling our capacity and greatly expanding our reach, this pioneering center will be the central hub advancing energy efficiency in the built environment, both locally and around the world. In close partnership with the City, State, and private sector, BE-Ex is delivering effective climate action through education, actionable reports, informative case studies, and interactive exhibits.

Our grand opening will honor our Founders Circle supporters and will launch Celebrate NYC: Building A Sustainable City, a new exhibit of 60 significant retrofit projects; recognizing the work that’s been accomplished, and inspiring others to act.

This highly anticipated event will also mark the 10-year anniversary of the NYC Carbon Challenge, an opportunity to celebrate the achievements and the remarkable leadership of the more than 100 participants.

Please honor us with your attendance alongside Mayor de Blasio (invited) and many other special guests to officially open our doors and announce a series of upcoming initiatives.

The Building Energy Exchange expansion helps educate even more professionals on sustainability and addressing climate change. As buildings contribute to 70% of our city’s emissions, organizations like BE-Ex provide resources, education, and tools for professionals. We are proud to have BE-Ex as partners as our city decreases emissions 80% by 2050.Council Member Costa Constantinides, Chair of the Council’s Environmental Protection Committee
