The Preservation League of New York State recently entered into a partnership with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to provide workshops throughout New York State that will address code compliance and energy conservation in existing and historic structures.
The League will offer a series of workshops in 2011, held regionally throughout New York State, specifically targeting the merging of historic preservation principles and practice with the requirements of the 2010 NYS Energy Conservation Construction Code.
“The technology for enhancing the energy efficiency of historic buildings is improving all the time,” said Jay DiLorenzo, President of the Preservation League. “The choices property owners make today can extend the useful life of their buildings and pay dividends for owners and residents both now and in the future.”
Additional information and a schedule of workshops will be made available on the League’s website at www.preservenys.org later in 2011.
