Clean Heating & Cooling
The largest source of the greenhouse gases in New York State comes from heating and cooling buildings. In order to achieve New York State’s commitment from the CLCPA to reducing greenhouse gas emissions 40% percent by 2030 and more than 85% percent by 2050 – it is critical that we address the nonelectric segment of the building sector, in addition to transitioning our electricity production to renewable sources. Renewable heating and cooling technologies, such as air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps, and geothermal and solar thermal systems, could eliminate the on-site use of fossil fuels to heat and cool buildings and to generate hot water.
To build support for renewable heating and cooling technologies, New Yorkers for Clean Power is a proud member of the Renewable Heat Now and Better Buildings New York campaigns, which work to advocate for New York State policies that will New York State to equitably transition away from fossil fuels and towards renewable-ready heating and cooling technologies.
