WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO ELECTRIFY?

Next week, our annual conference will examine what electrication means for New York City, why it could play a role in achieving 80x50, and when the transition would happen—When could the city feasibly electrify buildings? Why can't we do it right now? What other changes need to happen first, or simultaneously? On our blog, Elias Dagher of Dagher Engineering explains.

This conference is crucial for those working in all sectors of the green building community, as the transition to electric systems would have both policy and technology implications that will affect huge swaths of the industry. To learn how electrification would impact you, check out our Electrifcation Blog Post Series and join us at The Auditorium on October 4.
