In New York, people pay one of the highest energy rates in the country, which drives $15 billion of energy bills for our buildings every year. More than 75 percent of CO2 emissions in New York come from heating, cooling and providing electricity to buildings. That’s more than double the national average.
As a nation, our energy costs will continue to rise as we experience more heat waves, floods, storms and energy blackouts.
How should we respond? One way is to get smarter about using energy wisely in our homes, apartments and workplaces. Technology can help too. Learn more about the Smart Cities and Buildings Projects and Collaborations below.
