Event Details

LEAVING #6 OIL BEHIND: POLICIES, COSTS, AND SAVINGS

Sponsored by GreenHomeNYC & the CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities

NYC is one of the last bastions of #6 residual oil use in the country, and the environmental problems with this high particulate hydrocarbon has sparked a heated discussion in the City for decades. With the City now requiring most buildings to be off #6 oil over a fairly tight schedule, owners, environmental groups, oil and gas companies, and yes, even the general public are beginning to focus on these regulations. Learn what the regulations are, how they will affect buildings that burn #6 oil, and what the future will be for this fuel and buildings that burn it.

This forum will offer continuing education credits for BPI and AIA continuing education credits are pending.

About Patty Noonan

Each year, GHNYC honors the memory of our friend Patty Noonan, who in her brief career in NYC was one of the principle agents of change in sustainable affordable housing, and many other sustainable causes.  She inspired and mentored many in our field; as the point person for sustainable causes at the NYC Partnership, she changed the way many felt about our field; after 9/11, she took the helm of the Partnership’s downtown revitalization efforts.  Patty was a fabulous woman who left us much too early.  In tribute, GHNYC holds an annual Patty Noonan Memorial Policy Forum, to honor her memory, bring an important policy issue to light, and inspire people to follow in her path.

The Series

The Green Building Forum is held on the third Wednesday of each month (except December) at 6:30 PM and features presentations by green building practitioners followed by discussion. The events are always free and open to the general public. Read about past forums and see the up-coming topics on the GreenHomeNYC website.

Co-Sponsor

The CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities was created out of the vision and financial support of Theodore Kheel, prominent labor negotiator, lawyer, and environmentalist. Forged as part of a strategic alliance between Kheel's environmental organizations Earthpledge and Nurture Nature Foundation and the City University of New York, CISC has focused on serving as a catalyst through which cutting-edge knowledge about sustainability practice and theory is translated to a wide range of audiences within CUNY and beyond. Mr. Kheel's commitment to CUNY in part emerged out of his ambition to help New Yorkers change the way they see their relationship with the local environment. And from his perspective, a great place to achieve this is through a link to CUNY – as "CUNY is New York.”
