State Energy Plan 2015 New York State Energy Plan
Date of Current Plan 2015
Authoring Agency New York Energy Planning Board

This plan is operational with implementation and additional planning efforts through the Board member agencies and NYSERDA.  The Plan sets forth a vision for a robust and innovative clean energy economy that will stimulate investment, create jobs and meet the energy needs of residents and businesses over its 10-year planning horizon. The Plan’s strategies and recommendations have been designed to meet five policy objectives which include assuring that New York has reliable energy and transportation systems; supporting energy and transportation systems that enable the State to significantly reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, both to do the state’s part in responding to the dangers posed by climate change and to position the state to compete in a national and global carbon constrained economy; addressing affordability concerns of residents and businesses caused by rising energy bills, and improve the state’s economic competitiveness; reducing health and environmental risks associated with the production and use of energy across all sectors; and improving the state’s energy independence and fuel diversity by developing in-state energy supply resources.  In addition, it aims to continue efficiency programs that meet the EEPS goal to reduce state's electricity use by 15% below forecasted 2015 levels.
