BCNYS Renewable Energy Conference
June 29, 2021: 12:00 pm - June 30, 2021: 12:30 pm
The aspirational goals established by the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act have set New York on a path to green energy, but they aren’t without significant challenges for businesses and consumers. It’s time to explore how New York plans on achieving 70% renewable energy by 2030, a fully decarbonized electric generating sector by 2040, and state-wide net-zero emissions by 2050. This year, the conference will focus on the benefits and impacts of these policy changes through panel discussions on the development and deployment of on -and- offshore wind and solar resources, the reduction of emissions in the transportation sector and an update on the work of the Climate Action Council, as well as utilizing biomass in the State’s energy mix, lessons learned from Texas, and developing a sustainable, green workforce.
Due to COVID-19 we will be holding this year’s Conference via Zoom, but you will still be able to hear from leading voices in the fields of energy, transportation, technology, academia, government policy, and business. The Conference is designed to allow you to learn, meet subject matter experts, and ask questions on issues most important to you.
