With the state budget approved and Spring in the air, members of six ACE NY Clean Energy Advocacy Day teams spread out across the Capital last week to address two bills that lawmakers will hopefully face before the legislative session is over.
As legislators in Albany enter the final days of budget negotations – including at least some negotiation on climate change policy – we can all be inspired by young climate change activists. On March 15th, more than 1.4 million young people in more than 120 countries skipped classes and took to the streets to protest the lack of governmental action when it comes to climate change. The Climate Kids are demanding that politicians treat the climate crisis as a global emergency.
New York State has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change and increasing use of renewable energy is a central component of this plan.
New Yorkers for Clean Power hosted an online teach-in February 21 to teach New Yorkers about the importance of community renewables and what they can do to support them.
Dramatic action to cut greenhouse gas emissions has never been more urgent. Carbon emissions increased nationwide last year by 3.4 percent, ending three years of decline. Our action needs to (1) be speedy and (2) effect large-scale change.
If your mission is to promote clean energy in New York – like ACE NY – then you are feeling pretty good right about now. What I mostly feel is: momentum
The new year brings new hope for building renewable energy in New York State. Gov. Cuomo’s aggressive goal of achieving 50% of our electricity from renewable resources by 2030 puts New York in a Nation-leading role.
What a difference a few years and visionary leadership can make. This morning, developers finished 32 rounds of bidding on areas of federal waters off the coast of Massachusetts designated for offshore wind power development. The three areas drew a collective total of just over $405 million.
As the old saying goes, actions speak louder than words.
At today’s public meeting, the New York Public Service Commission (PSC) approved two major initiatives that will help achieve Governor Andrew Cuomo’s bold vision for New York State’s burgeoning clean energy economy.
As New York moves towards 50% clean energy by 2030, energy storage will continue to play an integral role of modernizing the state’s electric grid. The energy landscape in New York is quickly evolving, and New York State is increasingly incorporating storage technologies into the planning of its electric future.
