  • Beat The Extreme Heat | Nancy Anderson, Ph.D. | Torchlight Column | the Sallan Foundation
    speakers and the diverse make up of the audience a broader community that includes health professionals urban environmental innovators academic experts in urban infrastructure and government policy makers is a strong sign that protecting the health of the most vulnerable among us is well within reach Furthermore the conference has brought into a single focus the possibility for mitigating key urban heat impacts of climate change by way of implementing sensible UHIE reducing measures along with gathering useful information about local conditions at the micro scale It left me wondering Gee why didn t I think of that According to conference organizer and Committee Co founder and Co Chair Ilya Azaroff New York City s climate linked vulnerability to storm surges and flooding has been well covered since Superstorm Sandy His growing concern about urban heat dynamics has been propelled by experts on aging who have detailed the health risks posed by extreme heat which is the number one killer attributed to climate change With seniors projected to make up 20 of New York City s population by 2030 the rising number of citizens vulnerable to unprecedented and lethal extreme heat is cause for concerted action starting today Listening to the numerous proposals made by conference speakers certain hands on can do themes emerged Among them were Engineering and technology fixes to recycle or waste heat as a source of re useable energy Architect Chris Benedict cited the importance of storing and re using waste heat from air conditioners and installing on site energy cogeneration With such measures both UHIE and climate change can be mitigated with immediate benefits accruing to a less scorching hot urban experience Installing white blue green roofs Director of Policy at Urban Green Council and former staff in the Mayor s Sustainability Office Laurie Kerr recommend repaving urban streets and sidewalks with light colored materials that reflect rather than absorb and re radiate summer s heat Fostering new urban development along mass transit corridors to make it easier for urbanites to go carless and Deploying micro scale ground and air temperature sensors was called for by Brian Stone Professor of City and Regional Planning at Georgia Institute of Technology Ground level temperatures run higher than air readings in summer and it is the number with the biggest health significance As an added benefit such micro scale data becomes a good way to measure and monitor the impact of a city s cooling and greening measures Developing a UHIE campaign is something well within the reach of New York and other cities If any added inducement were needed such a campaign would entail actions that are climate friendly too Think of it as a tightly focused agenda for walking us back from the brink of killer heat and advancing the goal of cities like New York to cut their carbon footprint 80 by 2050 even if they can t reverse the global heating trend acting on their own Such a campaign is also eminently doable at

  • Actively Passive | Richard C. Yancey | Snapshot Column | the Sallan Foundation
    of meeting the significant energy use reductions required by this target As I experienced first hand that summer day passive design is focused on providing the most comfortable buildings possible using the least amount of energy and therefore produces projects of very high quality with massively reduced energy use This has not gone unnoticed The City Council is actively deliberating legislation to lead by example requiring a very low energy performance target for major city building projects leading building advocates are pushing to move to a low energy building code and a Passive House pathway for all new construction and we ve presented the Brussels success story more below to several interested forums showing how a low energy building competition that rewards private sector actors for the development of Passive House buildings can create a diverse body of successful replicable projects To better understand Passive House s potential I participated in a fact finding trip to Brussels in May 2015 where a passive standard for all new construction and substantial renovations was recently adopted as the energy code In just ten years Belgium s capital region and seat of the European Union EU has experienced an energy revolution transforming one of Europe s worst performing building stocks This radical program was spurred on in part by the EU s 2008 20 20 20 climate action targets which call for a 20 increase in energy efficiency 20 reduction in carbon emissions and 20 renewable energy by 2020 As of 2014 over 10 million square feet of passive buildings have been built or retrofitted in Brussels Through major government initiatives and support Brussels is demonstrating that passive house design can be affordable practical and efficient The region has accomplished this by mobilizing a combination of extensive training and support to professionals and tradespeople a leading edge competition to provide built examples of low energy buildings and the development of a robust supply chain What we saw in Belgium provides a compelling template for how New York City could begin to aggressively transition to low energy buildings The Belgian capital has 1 1 million people While its buildings consume 75 of all energy there is very limited potential for obtaining renewable energy Together these facts make reducing building energy consumption the imperative to meeting its climate action goals To stimulate change the government spent more than 55 million over seven plus years on this coordinated effort that included six annual competitions which rewarded 243 low energy projects with subsidies expertise and publicity while providing built demonstration projects over 15 000 hours of professional training annually alongside technical guides websites and other resources and working directly with building trades and companies to stimulate the supply of needed low energy building skills and materials Additionally the region led by example requiring all public projects to be built to passive standards starting in 2010 Having created a passive design context and capacity the capital region formally adopted a slightly modified version of the Passive House Institutes
