Energy, Money & Law

As I have been saying for the better part of the past decade, greening our real estate relationships is a critical component to greening the built environment. A perfect example is the frequently encountered barrier to generating renewable energy at multi-tenant-occupied properties: the inability of the landlord to distribute the renewable energy to its tenants. Forward-thinking landlords and tenants should be addressing this and other green-related issues in their leases so that both parties can reduce costs and carbon over the course of the term of their leases as new technologies become economically viable.

As part of New York Energy Week, this full-day conference will also provide perspectives on innovative financing strategies (and the related legal issues) that will allow real estate companies to develop and maintain consistently high performing buildings.

Please join us for what promised to be a highly engaging and cutting edge learning and networking opportunity. For more information and registration, see baruch.cuny.edu.
