14th Annual Alliance for Clean Energy NY Fall Conference
Albany Capital Center
55 Eagle St
Albany, NY 
Stay tuned for more information on upcoming speakers and topics.

Participants will explore New York’s goals, progress, and challenges in light of the recently enacted Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. This new law has dramatically changed the energy policy landscape in New York State. It has established a renewable electricity mandate in statute for the first time; it sets very ambitious renewable and energy efficiency goals; it compels rapid electrification of home heating and transportation, and it requires equitable investment in disadvantaged communities.

These are the issues we will explore at Clean Energy Now – Defining Climate Leadership with a mix of global climate leaders, New York State decision-makers, renewable energy developers and consultants, and supporters of the clean energy transition.
