On Wednesday April 19, 2023, the Hudson River Environmental Society will be holding a symposium at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, NY on the landscape tradeoffs as New York transitions to renewable energy (see, attached flyer). New York’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act has set rigorous goals to replace fossil fuel with renewable energy. By 2030, 70% of New York’s electricity will be generated from renewable sources: primarily wind and solar. By 2025, 6,000 MW of electricity generated in New York state will come from solar By 2035 9,000 MW of energy will come from offshore wind, both off the coast and in the Great Lakes.
The purpose of the meeting will be to: remind attendees of New York State renewable energy goals and the need to move in this direction; identify the potential impacts this transition is having on natural resources and the landscape; examine the research underway to identify potential impacts and management options to minimize impacts; and present what is being done to assure these impacts and tradeoffs are minimized or avoided.
