NYSERDA Seminars to Help Building Owners Take Advantage of Energy Efficiency

Free Events in Manhattan Will Detail How to Improve Building Performance and Control Costs With Support from Multifamily Experts

ALBANY—Energy efficiency offers a practical solution to complex, persistent challenges impacting the performance of multifamily buildings. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is holding seminars for building owners and developers in both Manhattan and Rochester this September and October to discuss the high value of investment in energy efficiency projects.

The free seminars will connect multifamily building owners, property managers, developers and board members of condominium and co-op associations with the resources they need to start saving through customizable energy efficiency programs in NYSERDA’s Multifamily Energy Performance Portfolio. Participants will receive an overview of the technical assistance and financial support available and will hear from experts about how energy improvements in existing buildings and new construction reduce energy costs.

Properties that make energy efficiency upgrades through the programs can generally realize significant cost savings—up to 20 percent or more—and offer residents units that are more comfortable, healthier and sustainable.

Multiple session options are available for building owners, managers, developers and condo / co-op board members to choose from at the following locations and times:

Manhattan, Tuesday, Sept. 9 at the SUNY Global Center in the Global Classroom, 116 East 55th Street, New York, N.Y. 10022
8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Manhattan, Wednesday, Nov. 12
at the SUNY Global Center in the Global Classroom, 116 East 55th Street, New York, N.Y. 10022
8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Get expert help from approved Partners for building upgrades, from start to finish
  • Choose program options to meet the specific needs of their buildings and business priorities
  • Take advantage of cash-back financial support and affordable financing

Register for these free seminars at nyserda.ny.gov/PowerEvents/2014.

The seminar series will also include afternoon sessions for contractors, builders, HVAC specialists and non-profit advocacy organizations interested in growing their business by becoming a Multifamily Performance Program Partner. Each Partner session will take place at the same locations and dates listed above from noon to 2:00 p.m.

Attendees at this session will learn about NYSERDA’s Multifamily Performance Program, its benefits to Partners, and the steps necessary to become one.

To learn more about becoming a Multifamily Performance Program Partner and to register for an afternoon session, go to nyserda.ny.gov/PowerEvents/Partners2014.


Fuel Oil Conversions
Guidance Document from the DEP

The city is in the final year of phasing out the use of #6 fuel oil. The DEP has developed a guidance document that provides a quick step approach for users who have not completed the conversion process, which includes the proper filling of all documents with the DEP. We would appreciate your sharing this document with your members. If your members are not certain of the status of their equipment or fuel oil type they can click on the link near the bottom of the page titled “DEP Status”. Contact numbers are provided in the document.

CONDO GOVERNANCE STUDY

CNYC has agreed to help with a comparative study of condominium living and governance in New York City and Toronto being conducted by Professor Setha Low and the Public Space Research Group (PSRG) at the Graduate Center of CUNY. Research associates Jennifer Ortiz and Helen Panagiotopoulos are eager to interview unit owners and board members about their experiences of living in a condo. An interview takes about half an hour and includes general questions about condo life. If you would like to participate or to receive more detailed information about this exciting project, please reply to jortiz1@gc.cuny.edu, noting that you are replying to the CNYC posting. Thank you so much for your interest and participation.
