Willdan worked with the New York City DCAS to create an action plan to achieve Local Law 97 (LL97) Emissions Reduction targets and break its dependence on fossil fuels. In early 2022, Willdan completed the development of New York City’s LL97 Implementation Action Plan to assist New York City government in meeting their Emissions Reduction Goals. Passed in 2019, LL97 is among the most ambitious climate legislation in the U.S. and mandates unprecedented, near-term greenhouse gas emissions reductions for New York City’s portfolio of government and private buildings.
- B3 Benchmarking, along with the NEO® software platform, rapidly and efficiently modeled and benchmarked 4,000 City buildings for evaluation to help meet the LL97 goal to reduce emissions 40% by 2025 and 50% by 2030, compared to a 2006 baseline.
- The benchmarking results support the City’s multidisciplinary approach to decarbonization planning and plan development to provide insight on technical feasibility and technologies to optimize nearly $4B in future energy improvements for City buildings.
