Event Details


New York’s Climate Leadership and Protection Act (CLCPA), passed in 2019, is one of the most ambitious climate laws in the world. It requires New York to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent by 2030 and no less than 85 percent by 2050. To get there, epochal shifts will need to happen across industries. On a practical level: What is it going to take actually to weatherize all those buildings? How are we going to get all that solar built? How can we ensure that underserved communities participate in the scoping of the CLCPA and benefit from its climate justice provisions?

Join us for a virtual event celebrating the launch of the latest issue of the Clean Power Guide and a look at the practical implications of implementing the CLCPA.

Moderated by Lissa Harris, Staff Writer for The River Newsroom; with Melissa Everett of Sustainable Hudson Valley, Ryan Hawthorne of Central Hudson, Sameer Ranade of NYSERDA, and Luis Aguirre-Torres of the City of Ithaca.
