  • Webinar: NYC Local Law 97 and Implications for CHP, August 6, 2020

The webinar discussed New York City’s Local Law 97, which presents some challenges for future investments in CHP. It places a cap on building carbon emissions beginning in 2024, with a much tighter cap in 2029. The law includes a requirement to develop a Building Carbon Trading Study, which will be of interest to the CHP community. NY-NJ CHP TAP Director Tom Bourgeois moderated the webinar.
