Toronto 2030 District | February Education Forum: Decarbonizing Buildings Through Private Equity

8:00 AM PT

More Info


To avoid the disastrous effects of climate change, we need to keep pace with the urgent need for decarbonizing buildings. We don’t have time to upgrade existing structures one at a time; we need strategies to create more energy-efficient buildings en masse.

We are incredibly pleased to highlight Luis Aguirre-Torres as our February education forum speaker. Aguirre-Torres is the Director of Sustainability for the City of Ithaca, NY. He has created a program that has raised $100M in private equity funds to date to finance energy-efficiency incentives for homeowners and building owners. The program will also provide training for a green workforce in the city.

Aguirre-Torres will present how he created the plan for the city, and Peter Bardaglio, The Executive Director of the Ithaca 2030 District, will answer questions about how a program could be applied to commercial buildings.
