E2 New York has over 100 members and has tackled such issues as clean vehicle incentives, electronic waste recycling, tire efficiency, net metering for renewable energy, watershed protection.
E2 will continue to provide business support for and comments on NY State Energy Plan’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) proceedings. REV is an ambitious program which aims to improve the efficiency, reliability and resiliency of our electricity system. The vision calls for more distributed energy resources, increased customer engagement in energy management, and greater reliance on markets and private capital.
One of E2 New York’s main priorities in the coming years is working with NRDC, Catskill Mountainkeeper, and a coalition of groups on Clean Power NY, a statewide campaign to phase out fossil fuels and rapidly shift to a clean energy economy in New York. The campaign will achieve its goals by advancing a range of energy efficiency, renewable energy, and clean transportation solutions. Through educating and activating the public, engaging local governments, and collaborating with businesses and other organizations, Clean Power NY's work will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support high quality, local job creation and community revitalization, improved public health, and a more resilient grid. Clean Power NY's efforts will help cement New York's role as a clean energy leader.
