Gov. Cuomo’s New Energy Efficiency Target for New York

Just on time for Earth Day 2018, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced new energy efficiency goals for New York State to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, help New Yorkers save on energy costs, and create jobs. According to the Governor’s office, the new energy efficiency target is expected to deliver nearly one third of the greenhouse gas emissions reductions needed to meet New York’s climate goal of 40 percent reduction by 2030. The Governor also said there would be an additional $36.5 Million in money for worker training to prepare up to 19,500 New Yorkers for new jobs.

In his announcement, the Governor reinforced the value of energy efficiency as “the most cost-effective way for New Yorkers to lower utility bills, curb harmful emissions and battle climate change.”

Strategies to meet this target should enable building developers, owners of commercial and institutional buildings, and homeowners to make building improvements to reduce building energy use. These strategies in themselves are not new. We’ll be looking closely to see what types of changes are proposed to meet the new targets.

New Yorkers pay about $35 billion each year for electricity and heating fuel, and buildings are by far the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions (approximately 59% statewide). Cuomo predicted a reduction of 185 trillion BTUs below the currently forecasted energy use in 2025. His office projected that achieving this reduction would “accelerate achievement of energy efficiency in the next 7 years by more than 40 percent over the current path.” (more…)
