The Open Window: Getting To Energy Efficiency In Exisitng Buildings

Saturday, Aug 4, 2007

Join Michael Bobker (CUNY Building Performance Lab) and learn how to shut the window on global warming. Today, NYC's building sector offers cost-effective opportunities for slashing carbon emissions and energy efficiency investors are lining up. But our habit of opening windows in winter and wearing office sweaters in summer undermines the performance of even the best new energy efficiency systems. Capital investments that overlook this bad habit run the risk of producing just so much hot air.
