January 24, 2017: NYC Energy Conservation Code - System Commissioning, Part 4
Join Green Building Worldwide for important seminars being held January 24, 2017. Key will be the review of System Commissioning changes and mandates within the newly amended NYC Energy Conservation Code. Registration is required as seating is limited.
New York City’s one million buildings include a diverse range of building types, architectural styles, and uses. Enforcement of New York City’s local Energy Code is a critical component in citywide efforts to reduce energy use and GHG emissions. Enforcement ensures that newly constructed and renovated buildings meet the building codes that require them to be more energy efficient and resilient.
By 2023 building owners are expected to invest 160 billion dollars in energy efficiency and the corresponding technology. Energy Conservation Measures alone have the potential yield 2.7 billion dollars in energy cost savings, reduce current building-based emissions by 33 percent and creating approximately 15,000 direct construction-related jobs. New York City has chosen to take a deliberate position to address the reality that 70 percent of its carbon emissions come from building assets through bold legislation.
Commercial buildings frequently undergo operational and occupancy changes that challenge the mechanical, electrical and control systems, hindering optimal performance. In today’s complex buildings, systems are highly interactive, with sophisticated controls that can create a trickle-down effect on building operations – small problems have big effects on performance. All buildings can experience performance degradation over time.
