With the passage of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA), New York has positioned itself as the nation’s leading state acting to tackle the climate crisis. If New York is to reach the ambitious goals of CLCPA, however, it will require an aggressive and economy-wide shift away from fossil fuels for electric power, transportation and heating and cooling, and other areas. But beyond the excitement of bringing the act into law, there remain many important questions:
How can New York really hit these targets in a way that ensures equity and economic prosperity? What will implementation look like and when do we begin the transition? Where will we have to innovate to successfully meet these goals? What is New York City doing to reduce its emissions? What roles do offshore wind and community solar play? How will we invest back into our communities?
All of these questions will be discussed with an expert panel of panel of policy-makers and practitioners.
