Event details:

Join the Building Energy Exchange (BE-Ex) and the NYC Depart ment of Administrative Services’ Division of Energy Management (DCAS DEM) for an in-depth look at how the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) has cut carbon emissions by 50% per visitor since 2005, while almost doubling the size of their facilities. By integrating energy efficiency into long-term capital planning and piloting the use of cutting-edge technologies, NYBG has also reduced energy use by more than 20% per SF, saving an average of $280,000 each year. NYBG’s long-term, innovative approach to energy efficiency capital planning offers valuable lessons for buildings of all types and sizes.

BE-Ex will kick off the event with a brief overview of our case study (forthcoming) on NYBG’s master plan, energy upgrades, and technology pilots completed to date. Members of the NYBG project team will then delve into the details of the Garden’s capital planning process, implementation of efficiency measures, lessons learned, and next steps in their project pipeline. Officials from DCAS DEM will also be on hand to discuss the agency’s role in supporting NYBG’s work, as well as funding opportunities available for eligible municipal properties.
