New York State plans to reach new aggressive clean energy targets by 2030. According to the 2015 New York State Energy Plan finalised last week, the state will generate 50% of its electricity from renewable sources, decrease greenhouse gas emissions by 40% and reduce energy consumption in buildings by 23%.

“These targets put the state on a path to achieve its longer-term goal of decreasing carbon emissions 80% by 2050,” said a spokesperson from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
