New York City’s Building Energy Exchange

This year The Starrett-Lehigh Building embraced the challenge and participated in Building Energy Exchange (BE-Ex). The building scored 8 points out of 9, where every point is worth a successful project! Starrett-Lehigh team is working on meeting New York’s ambitious goal set by NYC Carbon challenge and reduce greenhouse emissions by 80% by 2050.

BE-Ex connects New York City’s real estate and design communities to energy and lightning efficiency solutions through education, interactive exhibitions, technology demonstrations, and research.
