Dinner Seminar: Strategic Electrification in NYC
This presentation will cover the growing trend of strategic electrification in the New York City metropolitan area and the role of Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems. The role of strategic electrification in recent legislation such as New York State’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) and New York City’s Climate Mobilization Act (CMA) along with its historic passing of Local Law 97 will also be examined. Emerging green building programs such as Passive House and Zero Net Energy will also be analyzed for their alignment with this legislation. Then, the basics of VRF systems, the potential solutions that they offer for local climate legislation, and utility incentives for air sourced heat pumps (ASHP) will also be discussed in detail.
