Powering the Future: Commercial Energy Efficiency

This event is being held by the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund, NYU's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School for Public Service and its Institute for Civil Infrastructure Systems, and Con Edison at a two-part forum series that seeks to answer these questions.

The Commercial Energy Efficiency Forum will focus on state energy efficiency policy relating to commercial enterprises and developers. What can these companies do to support efficiency efforts? What should government be doing to assist the business community in adopting energy efficiency standards?

Experts and stakeholders discuss what incentives exist, how they can be made more effective, the role of energy efficiency mandates, and how programs could be more effectively administered.

Panelists Include:
Ramon Cruz, Vice President for Energy and Environment, Partnership for New York City

Hon. Paul DeCotis, Deputy Secretary for Energy, State of New York

Robert F. Fox, Jr., Partner, Cook+Fox Architects LLP

Hon. Martha Hirst, Commissioner of the Department of Citywide Administrative Services, City of New York

Josh Sirefman, Senior Vice President for U.S. Development, Brookfield Properties

Russell Unger, Executive Director, USGBC New York

Moderated by:
Isaac Dovere, Editor, City Hall & The Capitol
