The Resource Center

Green Light New York connects the New York real estate community to energy and lighting efficiency solutions through technology demonstration, education, and research.

Our classes, symposia, and exhibits gather the highly diverse communities of design, construction and real estate to focus on technologies, systems or processes that reduce energy use while improving the quality of the built environment . We identify promising technology, navigate barriers to adoption, introduce potential partners, broker relationships, and connect legal requirements and best practices to funding.

The heart of Green Light New York is our energy and lighting efficiency resource center in Manhattan, a physical venue for education and training, interactive mock-ups and displays, and a forum for progressive discourse. The first phase of the resource center will be open Spring 2014, with an active capital campaign to realize the completion of the facility.


A small facility with big aspirations. The following facilities are will be available Spring 2014 for use by our partners and other organizations that would like to join the conversation about how we can dramatically reduce the environmental footprint of our communities.

Research & Media

Let There Be Daylight advocates for advanced daylighting systems to become a standard feature of New York City office spaces. Our analysis finds that 114 million square feet of NYC office space can easily accommodate the retrofitting of comprehensive daylighting controls and achieve electric peak demand reduction of as much as 160 megawatts, and 340 gigawatt hours of electricity savings. Deployment of daylighting systems is an opportunity for New York City building owners and tenants to benefit from $70 million in energy cost savings each year.
