AIA New York invites you to attend a university roundtable on deep energy and carbon reductions.
In New York City and State, universities are leading the way in terms of achieving deep, portfolio-wide energy and carbon emissions. In 2007, 17 universities accepted the NYC Mayor’s Carbon Challenge to reduce their carbon emissions by 30% in ten years, and by 2016, they had reduced their emissions by 17% in aggregate, with four universities signing on to a 50% reduction target by 2025. At the state level in 2012, Governor Cuomo issued an executive order requiring NYS agencies, including the state university system, SUNY, to reduce their average energy use intensity by 20% by 2020.
However, it’s not uniformly springtime in the Groves of Academe. The state’s public universities, which must comply with some of the strictest mandates, often have the least resources at their disposal. That’s why AIANY is convening energy experts and a mix of private and public university officials to see how some schools have achieved reductions, and to discuss how universities can achieve these targets, especially if they are financially constrained
