IMPLEMENTING GREEN VISIONS

June 13th, 2019

John Jay College
City University of New York

The annual  2019 NY Solar+Storage Summit will be held on June 13, 2019. At the Summit Sustainable CUNY will convene decision makers and stakeholders across New York's diverse communities to outline strategies for reaching renewable energy and storage goals that supports equity, access, and resiliency for all consumers as we transition to a new green economy.

Balancing the Change

Energy is a commodity that impacts every single one of us. From wood in the1700’s to coal in the 1800’s to oil, natural gas, nuclear and finally renewables in the present day, the nation’s infrastructure adapted. Those ahead of the curve, the visionaries and savvy investors, determined where the economic advantages would lie.  It's been a long time coming, but change is here. This time, not only fueled by discovery, but by dwindling resources and the undeniable negative carbon impacts to the environment – which is now treated and traded like a commodity. Now is the time to ensure the new green economy is fair and sustainable.
