Weatherization and Benchmarking

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

As awareness of sustainable building is growing many are focusing on the more conspicuous elements that can be involved: solar panels, wind turbines, green roofs…the list goes on. Despite their utility in creating interest, any sustainability consultant worth his salt will tell you that none of these should even be considered until you’ve tightened your building’s shell or your just throwing good money after bad.

Once your building is weatherized it’s important to monitor its performance so you can see the benefits involved and make sure they last. These two practices, benchmarking and weatherization, are the topic of May forum and we’ll be looking at them in the form of data derived from Local Law 84, case studies, and a broad overview of the benefits of these practices.

Sponsors: GreenHomeNYC & NESEA

Date: Wednesday, May 15, 6:30 - 8:00 pm

Location: Nixon Peabody, 437 Madison Avenue, (E. 49-50 Street)

Speakers: John Lee, Deputy Director, Green Buildings & Energy Efficiency - NYC Mayor’s Office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability; Michele Soderstrom, Senior Account Manager - Bright Power, Inc.
