Zone Greener: Facilitating Solar

Tuesday, Jul 10, 2018

In 2012, NYC adopted a package of amendments to the NYC Zoning Resolution, called Zone Green, to facilitate more sustainable +energy-efficient design. Zone Green addressed barriers to building thicker, better-insulated walls, as well as the inclusion of sustainable design strategies, such as solar panels, solar shading systems, green roofs + greenhouses.

Fast forward six years: although Zone Green solved the problems anticipated at the time, new technologies + new barriers have since emerged. Last fall, a Task Force of over 40 stakeholders set out to develop a roadmap for Zone Greener, a set of potential updates to the Zoning Resolution for unlocking further opportunities for the next generation of green buildings. Join us to focus on modifications to the Zoning Resolution that would continue to advance solar energy.

Sponsor: Urban Green Council

Speakers: Laurie Kerr, Senior Policy Advisor - Urban Green Council + Derric Meister, New York Solar Ombudsman - Sustainable CUNY

Date:Tuesday, July 10, 6 - 8 M

Location: The Center for Architecture, 536 Laguardia Place
