GREENING THE GRID: GRID-OPTIMAL BUILDINGS


As our grid becomes greener, the power that flows through it will become more intermittent. To adapt, buildings will need to shift their power loads and store energy.

Join Urban Green and the New Buildings Institute on February 27 for a discussion on how buildings can adapt to a changing grid, and the limits of existing strategies.

This is the second event in our Greening the Grid series, which looks at critical topics related to making NYC’s grid more sustainable.
