This event features a moderated panel with a regional energy perspective discussing pathways to 100% clean power in New York by 2040, in front of an audience of approximately 100 energy professionals.  In particular the panel will focus on key issues such as transmission, access to clean base load power and development of local intermittent renewable energy.
This event will dive deeper into the challenges of building a carbon neutral economy discussed at earlier event and, by providing a regional perspective, this event lays the groundwork for the global energy challenges event in the evening of the 26th.
