Powering The Future: Exploring New York's Energy Options
In 2008 NYLCVEF launched its "Powering the Future" campaign. Our goal was to host a series of policy forums aimed at breaking through the clutter surrounding energy policy and providing policy makers and the general public with an unbiased and neutral arena to discuss these critical issues. Partnering with NYU's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service and its Institute for Civil Infrastructure Systems, we hosted three forums focusing in solar, wind and nuclear power in the fall of 2008 and two more events focused on energy efficiency in the spring of 2009.
While preparing for the Powering the Future project, Gov. David Paterson signed Executive Order 2, which established a State Energy Planning Board. This board is comprised of representatives from a variety of state agencies involved with energy regulation, policy and planning and is charged with developing a comprehensive energy plan for the state. NYLCVEF applauds this effort and is in the process of synthesizing a final report derived from the five forums to serve as recommendations to the State Energy Planning Board.Below, you will find the background materials from each forum. The audio from each event will be forthcoming in the early summer of 2009. Like all of NYLCVEF's educational activities, the forums were free of charge and open to the general public.
