Partnerships Make Energy Efficiency a Reality in the New York Hospitality

The property recently completed building automation upgrades, supported by incentives from NYSERDA, that dramatically improved the energy use of the 1298 guest room hotel.

Design Charrette: EU-China and U.S.-China Climate Cooperation and Dialogue

With the U.S. federal government stepping away from the Paris Agreement, international climate cooperation and dialogue between China and the EU as well with U.S. sub-national, civil society, and private sector actors are more critical than ever for maintaining momentum. How can philanthropy best support these new Track I and II dialogues? Who are the key participants and what are the most productive topics to address?

Disciplining fossil fuel subsidies for climate mitigation and SDGs: A job for the trade system?

Recent studies estimate fossil fuel subsidies to $5.3 trillion or 6.5 % of global GDP. Such subsidies are associated with a range of negative effects. Importantly, they boost greenhouse gas emissions and hence further spur climate change- without these subsidies, global carbon emissions would have been reduced by 21% in 2015.

Clean Energy: Bolstering our National Security at Home and Abroad

While the military clearly recognizes the threat of climate change to our national and global security, they are also one of the largest users of fossil fuel in the world. These concerns, combined with the vulnerability of bases relying on vulnerable electric grids and the tactical exposure associated with transporting fuel into battle, have spurred the military to shift to more secure forms of energy. Whether its massive solar arrays on bases, distributed microgrids, or better batteries, the military is leading the way on innovation and deployment of advanced energy.

IMPACT: Identifying Business Opportunities Created by NYC’s 80x50 Commitment

Reducing the City’s greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050 is the cornerstone of the City’s climate policy. Reaching this 80x50 goal will require transformative approaches to how we use and consume energy in the City. Whether it’s retrofitting NYC buildings, electrifying transportation, being smarter in how we collect and process solid waste, or shifting our energy supply towards renewables, an incremental approach to business-as-usual is unlikely to be sufficient.
