Additional direction in the Enacted Budget includes NYPA leading the state’s Decarbonization Leadership Program, a decarbonization and electrification initiative announced by Gov. Kathy Hochul in October 2023.
We are leveraging NYPA’s energy services and engineering expertise to develop decarbonization action plans for 15 of the highest-emitting state facilities. This initiative includes developing energy and emissions profiles of the state’s largest carbon-emitting facilities, and decarbonization action plans that will guide state agencies on facility improvements to reduce carbon emissions.
NYPA has kicked off work at nearly every facility and is finalizing efforts to onboard contractors to begin the analyses in earnest shortly.
