New York Focus in CleanTech Announces $160 Million Focus


April 17, 2015

By Dr. Tyra Oldham, LANDsds Sustainable Voice News


Exciting news on the power and utility front.  The development and movement to clean energy projects are spawning leading to efficiency and grid solutions. New York has taken a stand on green and continues as  “New York Announces $160M for Large-Scale Clean Energy” under the leadership of  New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo.  This project is to “grow large-scale clean energy across the state.”

The news is connected to “New York’s renewable portfolio standard, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) will procure energy from facilities that make electricity using wind, solar, fuel cells, biomass, renewable biogas or small hydropower.”

As the price of oil remains low but subject to increase the balance of clean and greentech is promising for state’s like New York. The development of advanced energy and alternative methods for clean energy overtime proves positive in the reduction of greenhouse gas and effects to climate change.

It is reported that “this is New York’s tenth solicitation as part of meeting its renewable portfolio standard (RPS) and the first time fuel cells can receive up to 20-year contracts, which the other technologies have already been eligible for in the past. Fuel cells were previously eligible for contracts of up to 10 years in duration. Currently, three fuel cell projects totaling approximately 1.3 megawatts have been chosen as part of New York’s RPS.”

“The funding for public-private partnerships is also driven by the state’s Reforming the Energy Vision initiative, which calls for a cleaner, more distributed energy system. While the continued investment in large-scale renewables may seem somewhat at odds with the distributed system that New York expects under REV, Richard Kauffman, the state’s chairman of energy policy and finance, acknowledged that renewables of all sizes are needed.”

Kauffman stated, “While we envision a more localized power grid in the future, it is imperative we ensure our large-scale generation sources are as clean as possible.”

The degree that states and organizations collaborate for advanced energy is driven by the sustainable focus applied to their region. The cost for innovation is not free but the reward are continuous and positive.

The grid today is under a microscope and reveals the age and outdated functionality that predates the explosion of transportation, technology and facilities that use and require constant and consistent energy. Leadership must be bold in their understanding of energy placing demands on its stakeholders to embrace a new frontier for energy advancement in line with resources.

The movement I see is to “energy expanding efficiently” that moves the ball to identify smart and responsive energy solutions that are sustainable over time and in unpredictable occurrences.
