This event is being held by the New York League of Conservation Voters

Education Fund, NYU's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School for Public

Service and its Institute for Civil Infrastructure Systems, and Con

Edison at a two-part forum series that seeks to answer these questions.

The Commercial Energy Efficiency Forum will focus on state energy

efficiency policy relating to commercial enterprises and developers.

What can these companies do to support efficiency efforts? What should

government be doing to assist the business community in adopting energy efficiency standards?


Together, we are bringing together experts and stakeholders to discuss

what incentives exist, how they can be made more effective, the role of

energy efficiency mandates, and how programs could be more effectively
