Preparation is completed, proof of concept and design is in progress, and pilot projects and first market are upcoming activities 

Over several phases in the coming years, RetrofitNY will catalyze the market for energy-efficient building renovations that approach or achieve net-zero energy use. But the time to get involved is now. We’re busy engaging property owners to generate demand and actors across the design and building industry to innovate and develop high-performance retrofit designs.

RetrofitNY Design Workshops

In preparation for the release of an upcoming request for proposal (RFP) to develop high-performance retrofit solutions for existing affordable multifamily buildings, the RetrofitNY team held two design workshops in Syracuse and New York City.  

Experts and thought leaders in the housing and design-build industry—including affordable-housing building owners and developers, architects, engineers, and manufacturers—attended the sessions to learn how they could contribute to the development of energy-efficient, comfortable, and healthier multifamily buildings in New York State.

These workshops included brief presentations on the RetrofitNY program, a discussion and Q&A panel with industry experts, and an opportunity to provide feedback, ideas, and solutions to shape our upcoming RFP. 

If you were unable to attend one of our workshops and/or would like to learn more about RetrofitNY and our upcoming RFP opportunity, we encourage you to review presentations from the Syracuse [PDF] and New York City [PDF] sessions. We will also provide the recorded video of the session in Syracuse, once available.
