The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), on behalf of the state, has been chosen to coordinate the development of offshore wind resources with New York State agencies. Taking a leadership role in this effort, NYSERDA has spearheaded the New York State Offshore Wind Master Plan, which provides a roadmap to reaching the state’s goal of 2,400 MW of offshore wind energy generation by 2030 while being sensitive to environmental, maritime, economic, and social issues. The plans also addresses market barriers and measures to lower costs. For more information and a link to a PDF of the Master Plan, click this slide.
Released in January 2018, this whitepaper was published to shine light on the NY Public Service Commission's approach to tackling REV.

Engage customers -- transforming electricity buyers into market participants.
The 2017 New York Consumer Pulse Study was sponsored by the Consortium to better understand the views of New Yorkers on key energy related issues. It was conducted in partnership with the Smart Grid Consumer Collaborative. This study examined key measures of consumer awareness, knowledge, attitudes, and perceived benefits and barriers as they relate to Smart Grid-enabled programs, the State’s Reforming the Energy Vision initiative, and advanced energy technologies.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the Clean Climate Careers initiative following the U.S. decision to withdraw from the Paris Accord. The initiative is a multi-pronged strategy to grow New York's emerging clean energy economy and prepare the workforce for the long-term careers associated with this industry. In partnership with the ILR School's Worker Institute at Cornell University and Climate Jobs NY, this initiative focuses on accelerating energy efficiency and renewable energy growth to make New York a magnet for new energy technologies and creating 40,000 new, good-paying clean energy jobs by 2020.
