Panelists will frame the policy context for the transformation of the urban built environment. The challenges posed by affordable housing development, the rebuilding of Ground Zero, the role of LEED in the high performance building arena and the intersection of energy policy and high performance building will be highlighted. While we have real successes using the Battery Park City green building standards and the City’s Department of Design and Construction high performance building guidelines, the challenges faced by innovators remain daunting. This panel of policy makers and practitioners will discuss what has worked, what hasn’t worked and what they have learned. They will examine what market place forces and public policies would make high performance building NYC’s “new normal”.
