RETROFITS: Heating Distribution Systems, Integrating Capital Planning for Deep Energy Reductions
The City will begin implementing the top actions immediately. These include the new energy code that requires holistic energy performance, requiring comprehensive retrofits to heating distribution systems, integrating capital planning for deep energy reductions into existing energy audit requirements, and incorporating the energy conservation measures (ECM).
CAPITAL PLANNING: Access to Financing and Incentives for Energy Improvements
New York City building owners face a range of competing needs that limit the amount of capital that can be spent on energy efficiency upgrades, particularly in affordable housing. In addition, implementing deep energy retrofits and leading edge new construction techniques today can be costly because the market for these services and products is not yet mature. It will be essential to help bring down these costs and work with the private sector to improve access to financing and incentives for energy improvements.
