Learn, Influence, Lead

NESEA's BuildingEnergy NYC conference is designed by and for practitioners in the fields of high-performance building and design, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and building/energy policy. Conference sessions and showcase demos offer best practices and lessons learned, case studies and proven data, technical how-to’s, emerging technologies, and innovative policies and programs. If you are a professional in the built environment in any stage of your training and career, plan to immerse yourself in two days of networking and intensive learning on Wednesday & Thursday, September 29 & 30, 2021, all online.

The theme of this year's conference is Collaboration. Gone are the days of comfortable silos. To achieve essential climate goals for NYC and beyond, we need to work together to provide and support:

  • Building creators, building owners, and building users connecting through integrated design process (IDP) and beyond
  • Lessons from Covid transformed to lasting changes in our practice
  • A workforce that’s well trained, safe, and honored
  • Design & operations staff communicating and resolving competing priorities
  • Reliable performance data to support capital planning and improve building performance
  • Carbon calculations that include all phases of construction and operation
  • Climate-similar cities sharing success stories and best practices
  • Equity included in every solution

But how? And who is responsible for doing this work? Join the discussion at BuildingEnergy NYC 2021.
