The 2014 Draft New York State Energy Plan (Draft Plan) sets forth a vision for New York’s energy future that connects a vibrant private sector market with communities and individual customers to create a dynamic, clean energy economy.
The Draft Plan is divided into two volumes and guided by statutory requirements of Article 6 of the Energy Law. The first volume provides 15 key initiatives to advance the State’s energy future. The Draft Plan contains actionable policy recommendations and analyses to guide the State’s efforts to advance new energy technologies that foster an innovative clean energy economy.
The second volume addresses energy use, its sources and impacts, and provides detailed background that was used to develop the overarching vision and initiatives in the first volume. In addition, the second volume provides forecasts for energy supply and demand, a statewide inventory of greenhouse gas emissions, environmental and public health impacts associated with energy production and use, and vulnerabilities of the energy system.
