It's Electrifying: Next Steps For Buildings And Systems

Thursday, Aug 24, 2017

3 years ago, NYC committed to reducing citywide carbon emissions 80% by 2050 — and the basic underlying math shows to achieve 80x50, we must do three things: cut building energy use in half;
green the grid (make the grid carbon neutral); and, electrify systems to reduce buildings' fossil fuel use.

However, the path to achieving these things by 2050 is cluttered with uncertainty. When is the right time to electrify building systems? Which technologies will we be seeing more of? Who will do the work? Don't miss a robust dialogue on emerging energy + building technologies which will examine the central assumptions about how to construct and operate our buildings over the coming decades.
