Webinar on green technologies towards New York

We are organizing a mission on #GreenTechnologies for European companies.

We are calling all companies within sustainable building management and individual heat and energy supply! The Smart City Tech Partnership hereby invites you to join our matchmaking mission to #NewYork City and the town of #Ithaca.

If you are interested in getting an introduction to the locations, sector focus, challenges and stakeholders, please register for our kick-off webinar on the January 12th at 15:00-16:00 CET . You will also learn how we intend to structure the mission from kick-off to post-mission evaluation.

#NewYork is not only the most populous state in #America with over 8 million inhabitants, but it is also seen as one of the most progressive American states when it comes to accelerating green growth. This is further highlighted by the state’s ambitious goals:
-  reduce its CO2 emissions by 100 percent by 2050
-  lower its CO2 emissions from buildings with 35 percent by 2025
-  massive investments of 4.1 billion into the green transition of New York
#Infrastructure is also on #NewYork’s green agenda. In fact, it is estimated that by 2050, 8,000-30,000 new buildings are to be built and up to 70,000 buildings are going to be replaced. It is also estimated that 14,500 building have already been selected for retrofitting. In this process, green solutions and innovative products are vital.

With the quality of many European countries’ expertise within the areas mentioned above, the interest for European solutions and products to enhance the #energyefficiency within #NewYork building is in high demand, creating a clear market opportunity for European companies as well as the opportunity for public actors to create new green international friendships.
Approximately 360 km from NY City lies #Ithaca which is home to 32,000 residents as well as the #1 ranked in Sustainability, private Ivy League institution, Cornell University.

Despite its size, the city has some very big green ambitions and in 2019, the City of Ithaca unanimously adopted its Green New Deal, a plan which will help cut Ithaca’s 4000,000 tons per year of carbon dioxide emissions by 40%. The Green New Deal includes the ambition of achieving carbon-neutrality community-wide by 2030. To achieve it, #Ithaca have chosen to decarbonize and electrify thousands of privately owned commercials and residential buildings across the city by the end of the decade. The focus on #retrofitting buildings – installing electric heating systems, solar panels and battery storage as well as reducing energy use and greening the electric grid – promises to tackle an often-overlooked but significant contributor to climate change.
