NYStretch – New York’s Local Code Option for Maximizing Building Performance and Reducing Emissions

October 9, 2016

Webinar: Thursday, Oct. 13, 2016, 10:30 AM- 12:00 PM

This Climate Smart Communities webinar will give an overview of the development and potential applications of the NYStretch Energy Code. The objective of NYStretch is to provide a straightforward, flexible approach to achieving above code-minimum energy efficiency performance for residential, commercial and multi-family buildings. Adopting NYStretch Energy gives local governments that wish to demonstrate leadership on climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions a clear and high-impact opportunity to do so.

The NYStretch effort is spearheaded by NYSERDA and the New Buildings Institute (NBI), and supported by an Advisory Group made up of a broad cross-section of industry stakeholders and policymakers. NBI was selected through competitive solicitation to lead this effort, and has built on prior successful efforts in other states (Massachusetts, Vermont).
