Sep. 24, 2020 – Decarbonizing the Downstate Grid: A Look at Transformational Clean Energy Projects

Thursday, September 24, 2020
12-1pm

via Zoom

With the Indian Point nuclear facility scheduled to close next year, the downstate region that has relied on it for so long will be left facing a serious issue in its fight against climate change. Without an acceleration of clean energy and storage projects in the near term, the region risks increasing its reliance on fossil fuel generated power, degrading local air quality and undermining its fight against climate change. 

Join us for this unique event during Climate Week NYC 2020 to examine new major clean energy projects that will collectively reshape the downstate grid within the next 5 years and over several decades to come.

Speakers:

Julia Bovey, Equinor 
Jennifer Garvey, Orsted
Martin Imbleau, Hydro-Québec
Jamil Khan, Ravenswood Generating
Catherine Loubier, Delegate General of Québec
Danielle Spiegel-Feld, Guarini Center
Julie Tighe, NY League of Conservation Voters (Moderator)

This event is jointly hosted with the Québec Government Office in New York.
