NYSERDA’s RFP Networking Session

On Monday, February 26, SyracuseCoE will be hosting the NYSERDA’s RetrofitNY RFP Networking Session for professionals involved with or interested in learning about retrofit solutions for affordable housing units.

RetrofitNY’s Request for Proposal (RFP) began on February 6, 2018, working to renovate multifamily buildings to reach or approach net-zero energy performance, and revolutionizing the industry in New York.  They are currently seeking building owners and qualified teams to respond to the RFP.

At the event, the RetrofitNY Team will discuss their application process and answer questions, while allowing other industry professionals to network with solution providers and building owners.  Building owners, public housing authorities, architects, energy engineers, builders, manufacturers, high-performance (or passive house) building experts, solar PV providers, and affordable housing developers are all encouraged to attend.
