“Green the Grid and Electrify Everything”
Presented by: Andrew Pezzullo, Clean Power Fellow with New Yorkers for Clean Power
What will it take to transition NY’s economy to renewables? What is needed for NY’s electric grid to be powered with renewable sources? How do we decarbonize our buildings and transportation so they are running off that renewable electricity? Join us to find out.
