Natural Power: Sustainability Policies and Practices at the New York Power Authority

The United States is one of the largest energy consumers and biggest contributors of greenhouse gases worldwide. In 2011, the U.S. generated 42 percent of its electricity from coal and only 13 percent through renewables, chiefly hydropower. While improvements are needed, the utility industry has made strides in recent years (coal consumption has decreased markedly over the last three years, for example) and exhibits great opportunity to continue on the path of energy efficiency and emissions reduction. 

On June 13, Rock Brynner, Specialist at the NYPA's Office of the CEO, will provide insights into sustainability efforts at the New York Power Authority (NYPA) and discuss how utilities can push electricity generation to cleaner and greener heights. His discussion will cover the recent expansion of renewable energy projects and case studies of demand-side management successes at the NYPA.
