Rachel Ehrlich on AIANY COTE’s Equity and Electrification Panel
On June 22, Associate Principal Rachel Ehrlich will be speaking at the AIANY Committee on the Environment (COTE)’s “Equity in Electrification: Electrification of Affordable Housing” panel at the Center for Architecture. The AIANY COTE’s Equity and Electrification series explores issues of equity in the push to fully electrify New York City’s building stock.
The passage of Local Law 154 means that design professionals in New York City will be tasked with providing effective solutions for electrifying buildings. This panel will provide a broad overview of policy and equity issues surrounding building electrification in New York City, along with a case study that tackles the technical opportunities and challenges of electrifying affordable housing.
Rachel will be joined on the panel by Michael Wadman (Phipps Houses) and Zoe Grossman (Bright Power) with Annie Carforo (WE ACT for Environmental Justice) as moderator.
