Green Technology Market Needs in Affordable Housing
Tuesday, September 26th, 2023 3:00pm to 4:00pm
Registration required for online viewing
Outdated, inefficient buildings and their HVAC systems are a harsh financial and wellness burden for low and middle income families. They also hinder national goals for lowering energy usage and increasing electrification. This online workshop will feature panelists who will share their experiences in seeing successful past adoption of new technologies, what emerging technologies excite them, and where there are pain points that reveal urgent needs for new technologies, moving forward, with insightful observations intended for green technology companies to enter the enormous affordable housing market. Read more about the workshop’s panelists and moderator below. Register today!
Jordan Bonomo is a Senior Project Manager in the Sustainability Department at NYCHA
. In this role he manages energy efficiency and carbon reduction projects, which include steam heat optimization, electric demand management technologies, heat pumps, and strategies for electrifying heat and hot water at scale. Jordan is currently managing NYCHA’s RetrofitNY pilot project, which aims to make a NYCHA building Net Zero-Energy using the Energiesprong model. He is also managing NYCHA’s Clean Heat for All Challenge, which leverages NYCHA’s scale to generate packaged cold climate heat pumps to reduce the cost of space heat electrification in existing buildings.
