On June 27, 2018, the NYC 2030 District held its first annual Summer Reception at the top of the Fujitsu Airstage in Times Square. The New York City 2030 District is a non-profit organization committed to helping building owners reach their energy, sustainability and, resiliency goals through education, outreach & project aggregation.
The event was attended by our building owner stakeholders, service professionals, sponsors and volunteer members, where we announced our new Action Plan:
NYC 2030 District Energy Audits The NYC 2030 team is utilizing the innovative simuwatt® Energy Auditor, a cloud-based, tablet and desktop software application that lowers the time and cost of providing high quality, commercial building energy assessments while preserving the data to facilitate reporting, portfolio-wide tracking, and reuse. Energy Auditor will be a valuable tool for our members seeking low-cost (+ FREE) ASHRAE Level I or II audits and will enable NYC 2030 to easily access energy benchmark data block by block, neighborhoods or by the NYC 2030 Districts!
NYC 2030 District Project Aggregation
With the ability to provide revenue grade energy audits and as an Investor Confidence Project (ICP) Credentialed Project Developer, the NYC 2030 District will be better able to help reach our 80×50 goals with project aggregation. ICP protocols provide a much needed standardized roadmap to assess risk and deliver on project results by predicting energy savings, optimizing performance, and monitoring the outcome of energy efficiency investments in order to generate financial savings and returns. ICP credentials and certifications are provided by Green Business Certification, Inc. (GBCI), (home of LEED, GRESB, & the WELL credentialing systems).
NYC 2030 District Project Financing
With our ability to aggregate projects utilizing ICP’s Investor Ready Energy Efficiency™ (IREE) certification, the NYC 2030 District will be able to accelerate project development with lower costs and financing terms for our stakeholders. The NYC 2030 District will also promote and utilize NYSERDA and Con Edison’s new Pay for Performance (P4P) model, utilizing OpenEEMeter’s M&V 2.0 standards which lower M&V costs through automated calculations of savings
