BuildingEnergy NYC 2020: Carbon
Now in its ninth year, BuildingEnergy NYC is a conference designed by and for practitioners in the fields of high-performance building and design, energy efficiency, and renewable energy. Last year's event brought more than 400 professionals from across the industry together to learn from and network with one another. Every year, sessions are chosen by a committee of NESEA Members and highlight best practices and lessons learned.
The 2020 event will take place as virtual conference and trade show on Wednesday & Thursday, September 23 & 24.
The conference theme of BuildingEnergy NYC 2020 is Carbon. Given the urgency with which we must dramatically reduce carbon emissions, we are expanding the scope of BuildingEnergy NYC beyond operational performance to include the carbon impact of buildings throughout their entire life cycle. We've come a long way in figuring out how to make buildings operate at peak efficiency; let's now examine how these high-performing projects can operate effectively on a rapidly decarbonizing grid.
As 2019 Conference Co-chair Laura Humphrey put it, BuildingEnergy NYC attendees are the “influencers” of the industry. They are the leaders in innovation, design, and policy, unafraid to question the status quo, and committed to transforming our built environment. They represent a wide array of professional specialties including architecture, engineering, development, construction, energy, policy, finance, manufacturing, and education.
