EBI Consulting’s Energy Program Manager and Senior Energy Engineer Lucy Bass was featured in a recent Bisnow article, "Powering NYC Skyscrapers With Renewable Energy Is Nearly Impossible. But Some Are Starting To Try."
The article examines New York City building owners’ journeys to power their properties with 100% renewable energy. With Local Law 97 on the horizon, which will penalize property owners that don’t reduce their carbon emissions, Bisnow reports that building owners are looking beyond simply reducing power usage, but pursuing renewable power sources.
Bass told Bisnow that solar will likely be a popular option, but also suggested that property owners will have to turn to other measures as well.
