“From coastal resiliency and sustainable green practices to the preservation of affordable housing, world-class public art, and vibrant, year-round programming in award-winning public spaces, Battery Park City leads the way in many of the measures that makes cities livable."

The Energy Topic Area addresses deep energy retrofits, building electrification, low-carbon district energy systems, renewable energy supply and storage, and GHG emissions monitoring and reporting in Battery Park City. Implementing these Strategies will significantly reduce energy demands and associated GHG emissions in Battery Park City and ensure that building systems are more efficient and healthier overall. These improvements will also deliver many co-benefits from simplified maintenance to reduced operational costs to improved air quality and controllability of systems. The best method for achieving these improvements is through collaboration across the diverse building portfolio in Battery Park City, supported by external partnerships and programs.


BPC Building Inventory
Battery Park City’s Building Inventory was completed in Fall 2021 and is a key element of our Sustainability Plan. It provides a high-level cataloging of building systems and energy use across the neighborhood. The Inventory begins to identify solutions to achieve significant reductions in GHG emissions and underscores the importance of BPCA serving a facilitator role and connecting buildings with existing funding and financial programs with City, State, and utility partners. This will also help inform the ongoing development of our Climate Action Plan that will establish GHG reduction pathway targets for buildings, transportation, and waste as we chart a path toward carbon neutrality by 2050.
