The NYC 2030 District will be producing the 1st Annual NYC Retrofit Conference to be held at the NYC Real Estate Expo on 10/24/19 at the NY Hilton Midtown.
“2019 is a big deal for us. It is our 11-year anniversary and we are excited about our impressive roster of key players lined up to speak. With all the major real estate publications participating and over 150 exhibitors on board, we are expecting a record number of 5,000+ professionals to attend. There truly is no other venue like this in the city.”
—Anthony Kazazis, founder of NYC Network Group and Executive Director of the NYC Real Estate Expo
Below is our Agenda a/o July 22, 2019:
“New York City is the first city in the world to require all large existing buildings of 25,000 square feet or more, of which there are 50,000 citywide, to make efficiency upgrades… or face steep penalties”, according to City Hall. The costs to retrofit all these buildings will easily exceed tens of billions of dollars, placing a tremendous burden on NYC landlords. Join us as at the NYC Retrofit Conference as we guide you through the ramifications and opportunities of our new Local Laws.
• Welcoming Remarks
• Introduction to NYC 2030 Goals and Services
• New York’s Commitment to Energy Efficiency
Seminar Session I – How to Deal with NYC’s ‘Green New Deal’
The bold bundle of six bills, known as the Climate Mobilization Act, is geared toward reducing the city’s planet-warming emissions by setting caps for most large buildings, with the goal of achieving a 40% decrease in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030 and 80% by 2050. Landlords who don’t adapt their buildings will face hefty fines. Learn what the Climate Mobilization Act means to you from our expert panel.
Seminar Session II – Anatomy of a DEEP NYC Retrofit
To comply with these new regulations many buildings will need to take a whole-building approach to achieve the larger energy savings – sometimes more than a 50% reduction. A Deep Energy Retrofit can be expensive and complex. Join our panel as they dissect how to upgrade your building systems in the right order, and as soon as possible.
Seminar Session III – Optimize & Electrify Your Steam Buildings
More than 70% of NYC’s large buildings use steam heating – the largest single source of energy consumption. Upgrading and replacing your heating and cooling systems will likely be the most valuable upgrade you can make. Find out what new solutions exist for your old boilers, including conversion to an electric heating system (Electrification).
Seminar Session IV – Smart Savings with Smart Buildings
The Internet of Thing (IoT) for energy, which combines existing and new meters and sensors, and then applies Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) software, enables dynamic energy management and optimization in real-time. Discover how you can intelligently reduce your single greatest controllable operating expense + maintenance costs with a Smart Building.
Seminar Session V – New Financing Solutions for Retrofits
The most persistent barrier to the wide-spread implementation of building retrofits is the traditionally high cost of capital to finance these projects. However, new financing vehicles and strategies are helping owners to overcome this obstacle. Our panel will explore how you can best leverage all the retrofit-specific financing tools and options.
