NYC’s Empire State Building Takes Energy-Efficiency To New Heights
The iconic Empire State Building in New York City is pointing the way toward energy efficiency. Since the building started a comprehensive retrofit in 2009, it has been consistently racking up savings every year. Currently the retrofit is projected to save 38% of the building’s energy and $4.4 million annually, according to the building’s ownership.
The building ownership worked on several major retrofit projects with a team that included the Clinton Climate Initiative, Johnson Controls, JLL, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), and Rocky Mountain Institute.
