Environmental Monitoring, Evaluation, and Protection in New York: Linking Science and Policy
November 15 & 16, 2011 Holiday Inn, Wolf Road, Albany, NY
This conference brings together policy makers and nationally renowned scientists to share information on environmental research initiatives in New York State.
Production and use of energy impose one of the greatest burdens on our environment of any human activity. The Environmental Monitoring, Evaluation, and Protection (EMEP) program at NYSERDA provides scientifically credible and objective information on environmental impacts of energy systems to assist the state in developing science-based and cost-effective policies to mitigate impacts. The EMEP program supports policy-relevant research in order to enhance understanding of energy-related environmental issues.
