Building Resilience; NYC's Distributed Energy Future

Building Resilience: 

NYC’s Distributed Energy Future

When: Wednesday, September 19, 2018 from 4pm to 8pm
Where: Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place, New York, NY

Achieving climate goals and greater resilience requires integrated systems-level thinking, particularly when it comes to energy demand, distribution, and supply.

How can the city and its communities generate common benefits by utilizing distributed energy networks? 

How can architects and engineers navigate the changes in energy generation, delivery, and storage strategies in their projects in order to achieve emissions reductions and gain greater resilience via DERs? 

This event will feature panel discussions, case studies and an open forum to provide a comprehensive look at the intersection between NYC’s climate goals, the latest DER technologies, and the built environment.
