Renewables & Transportation

 

New York’s transportation and electricity sectors account for approximately 28% and 13% of statewide greenhouse gas emissions, respectively. To achieve the Climate Act goal of generating 70% of electricity from renewable sources by 2030, accelerated deployment of distributed solar, offshore wind, and onshore wind is required.

Increasing the adoption of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) and use of low-carbon modes of transportation are critical to reducing emissions and creating cleaner, healthier communities. As more buildings and transportation modes electrify, growth in energy storage and a modernized grid are essential to making energy available when and where it’s most needed.

Explore the case studies below to learn how energy storage, clean transportation, and grid modernization are charging New York towards a clean energy future. Filter by case study category, search for keywords, or sort alphabetically in the table to narrow your search.
