About The Event

New renewable energy projects, both solar and wind, seem to be built more frequently than ever. Utilities and large companies have been signing contracts all over the country, but what can homeowners and businesses do in the NY area if they don't have the space for a windfarm or a solar array? New regulations and new companies have sprung up to create local renewable energy projects that allow customers to buy their production. Called community energy projects, these developers have opened up a whole new opportunity for smaller customers to buy their power from renewable resources. This session will explore the technical, regulatory and business developments behind community energy.

What changes in our Building System (BAS) applications become possible in an age of low-cost, internet-enabled communicating electronics (sensors and micro-processors)? How are we able to tie together more devices and more conditions to achieve better control over our systems and indoor environmental conditions and across portfolios of buildings? What barriers are faced in getting there and what solutions are emerging? Can we bring older systems up to snuff for operating in this new data-rich environment?

These are some of the questions that will be addressed by a panel of experts at our April meeting. We hope you will join us in exploring this important topic.

This Pro Tour features a deep-energy retrofit of a historic New York City Building – the former headquarters of the NYC Board of Transportation which has been re-imagined as New York University’s new space for engineering, applied science, and digital technology.

Attendees of this event will hear from members of the project team tell the story of the ambitious renovation of this building. As part of New York City’s Applied Science Initiative, New York University and the NYCEDC partnered to revitalize 370 Jay Street, the former headquarters of the MTA built in the late 1940s, and transform it into a vibrant hub where engineering, media, tech and the arts can co-exist and collaborate. 370 Jay Street will be home to leading programs in computer science and engineering, data informatics, gaming, digital media and recorded music, among others. Once completed, this flagship building will contribute to the revitalization of Downtown Brooklyn and be an integral component of the emerging Brooklyn Tech Triangle.

The first phase of the project included infrastructure and façade upgrades, and renovations of two upper CUSP (Center for Urban Science and Progress) floors. The next phases, now underway, will complete the fit-out of the remaining nine floors and the ground floor spaces.

The project was recently recognized with LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, joining the rankings as one of four projects in New York City to achieve LEED Platinum Core and Shell.

Project Details:

  • Units: 66
  • Square Footage: 556,000
  • Type of Construction: Retrofit
  • High-efficiency windows with extensive air-tightness testing to ensure proper air-sealing
  • Advanced HVAC systems, thermal storage, and solar shading/daylighting
