Green Building Discussion

A couple of months ago the Green Buildings Discussion Group of the New York Academy of Sciences hosted a panel discussion titled Achieving Urban Infrastructure Efficiencies Through Building Networks. The link to the Academy eBriefing was just posted last month and you can find the audio and slides from the discussion under the “Media” tab of the eBriefing. At this event, experts focused on the idea that realizing the full urban potential for deep energy reductions will require a reconceptualization of urban infrastructure: we must begin to think of cities not as collections of discrete buildings but as networks of buildings that can share information and better manage resources collectively.
