Join the Building Energy Exchange (BE-Ex) and the NYC Department of Administrative Services’ Division of Energy Management (DCAS DEM) for an in-depth look at how the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) cut carbon emissions by 50% per visitor while almost doubling the size of their facilities. By integrating energy efficiency into long-term capital plans and piloting the use of cutting-edge technologies, NYBG also reduced energy use by more than 20% per SF, saving an average of $280,000 each year. NYBG’s long-term, innovative approach to energy efficiency capital planning offers valuable lessons for buildings of all types.

BE-Ex will kick off the event with a brief overview of our case study on NYBG’s energy master plan (forthcoming). Members of the NYBG project team will then discuss details of the Garden’s capital planning process, efficiency measures and technology pilots completed to date, lessons learned, and next steps in their project pipeline. Officials from DCAS DEM will also be on hand to discuss the agency’s role in supporting NYBG’s work.
