One piece of information that did come from the conference that will have more lasting impact on the region is the new document titled Greening NYC's Historic Buildings: Green Rowhouse Manual that focuses on how to preserve the rowhouses of New York while making them energy efficient and green. There are sections on wall and roofs, windows and doors, heating and cooling, lighting and electrical wiring, plumbing and water efficiency, appliances and plug loads, indoor health, outdoors, fuel efficiency, and incentives and programs. You can download the manual here. It is a nice addition to the emerging practical information on green building and historic preservation.
