Clean Energy Initiative

Building a clean, resilient, and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers.

The State Energy Plan is a comprehensive roadmap to build a clean, resilient, and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers. The Plan coordinates every State agency and authority that touches energy to advance the REV agenda, unleashing groundbreaking regulatory reform to integrate clean energy into the core of our power grid, redesigning programs to unlock private capital, and actively deploying innovative energy solutions across the State’s own public facilities and operations.

In 2014, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo launched New York’s signature energy policy, Reforming the Energy Vision (REV). REV will build an integrated energy network able to harness the combined benefits of the central grid with clean, locally generated power.

The Plan, as a roadmap for REV, fosters economic prosperity and environmental stewardship—government and industry working together through public-private partnerships to achieve our shared goal of a healthier and stronger New York economy.

The initiatives outlined in the State Energy Plan, along with private sector innovation and investment fueled by REV, will put New York State on a path to achieving the following clean energy goals:

  • 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 levels
  • 50% of energy generation from renewable energy sources
  • 600 trillion Btu increase in statewide energy efficiency
