NYC Panel Discussion: Green Buildings – A Global Look at Tracking Energy Efficiency
Tues, Oct 30. 6 pm. The New York Academy of Sciences,
7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St. at Barclay St., 40th fl.
Exercising its unique position as a neutral third party, the Academy formed a collective – including architects, engineers, scientists, policy makers from city and state, foundation and non-profit leaders – representing the key players in New York in the area of green buildings and sustainable design. This newly formed group addresses a unique niche for which the Academy can leverage its scientific strength to deliver significant value to the green buildings discourse. This year’s focus will be on addressing energy and measurement issues with respect to sustainable design including a survey of best practices nationally and internationally.
