Now in its ninth year, BuildingEnergy NYC is a conference designed by and for practitioners in the fields of high-performance building and design, energy efficiency, and renewable energy. Last year’s event brought more than 400 professionals from across the industry together to learn from and network with one another. Every year, sessions are chosen by a committee of NESEA Members and highlight best practices and lessons learned.
The 2020 event will take place as virtual conference and trade show on Wednesday & Thursday, September 23 & 24. Through one virtual platform you can connect with colleagues, view live demos and interactive breakouts from our sponsors and partners, livestream 19 accredited sessions, engage in discussion with speakers, and access recorded content for a full year after the event. You can earn AIA, BPI, LEED GBCI, PE, RESNET, and PHIUS CPHC CEUs.
The conference theme of BuildingEnergy NYC 2020 is Carbon. Given the urgency with which we must dramatically reduce carbon emissions, we are expanding the scope of BuildingEnergy NYC beyond operational performance to include the carbon impact of buildings throughout their entire life cycle. We’ve come a long way in figuring out how to make buildings operate at peak efficiency; let’s now examine how these high-performing projects can operate effectively on a rapidly decarbonizing grid.
The Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) helps high-performance building and renewable energy professionals improve their practices by learning from and networking with each other. Founded in 1975, it is a member-driven 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the adoption of sustainable energy practices in the built environment. Learn more at nesea.org.
