Please join the Guarini Center and a group of leading energy policy experts for a discussion on “After Indian Point: Alternatives for Low-Carbon Electricity in New York City.”

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has pledged to shutter the Indian Point Nuclear Plant north of New York City by April of 2021. The closure will effect major change to the New York City power system; Indian Point currently provides about 25 percent of the electricity consumed in New York City and Westchester and the electricity it supplies is carbon free.  At this upcoming event, experts will examine low-carbon alternatives for replacing the lost capacity as well as regulatory and policy constraints impacting the City’s options.

Speakers include:

Kyle Collins, Energy Marketer, Hydro Quebec

Susanne DesRoches, Deputy Director, Infrastructure & Energy at the New York City Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency and the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability

Richard Dewey, Executive Vice President, New York Independent System Operator

Jackson Morris, Director, Eastern Energy Project, Natural Resources Defense Council

Eduardo Porter, Reporter, New York Times (moderator)

Mark Travers, Executive Vice President, Global Practice Development, Ramboll

This event is hosted in collaboration with the Quebec Government Office in New York and the Danish Cleantech Hub
