Urban Green Council Conference Debrief

June 24th, 2019 in News by

A fantastic day at the Urban Green Council conference “Retrofitting To Scale: 50,000 Buildings In 10 Years” that was held Tuesday June 18th at the Eisner & Lubin Auditorium at NYU. Tunstall Corporation was a proud supporter level sponsor of this event. There wasn’t an empty seat at this sold out event and I was told they had to turn people away. I had the pleasure of meeting John Mandyck, CEO for Urban Green Council at the post conference luncheon and his passion for this topic is infectious and inspiring. Of the many messages conveyed during this conference, it was clear that if your building falls into the first group that will be required to be in compliance by the first reporting date of May 1, 2025, you should not wait to get this process started. Investing in a comprehensive energy audit will reveal what measures can immediately help your building. Steam heated buildings can implement radiator control valves and repair steam traps which will provide a level of comfort and control to tenants while simultaneously putting a dent towards your carbon emissions compliancy. The ROI (payback) for steam upgrades is very fast and should be at the top of the list.
