The energy landscape in New York City is rapidly changing. As part of efforts to increase sustainability and eliminate greenhouse gas emissions, a series of legislative measures were passed that directly affect a majority of buildings. Navigating these new laws can be challenging. At Ecosystem, we are actively helping building owners and managers respond to these new challenges, implementing projects that eliminate fines, improve energy grades, and take advantage of incentive programs to keep costs low. We’ve put together this quick cheat sheet to help you remember some important regulations and how they may impact you and convey this information to your clients.
