The Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) is dedicated to serving both experienced building practitioners, owners, architects, urban planners, and those that are new to the field. BuildingEnergy NYC was first launched as a small multifamily building efficiency conference in December 2012. The event has now expanded as a multi-disciplinary event to meet the demand of the greater NYC building & energy community, and create opportunities for unique networking.

BuildingEnergy NYC is set apart by how it is created. In just two months, 50+ acclaimed volunteer professionals, all members of NESEA, put together 24 sessions that are sure to benefit building practitioners, owners, and developers at all levels. The challenge of making New York’s buildings more efficient, sustainable and resilient can only be overcome by having practitioners from all elements of the building industry in the same space learning from and connecting to each other - a whole systems approach. BuildingEnergy NYC attracts exactly the right kind of professionals to make that happen. Learn more at:
