Greening the Grid: New York’s Energy Future

Tuesday, December 5 at 6:30 pm at the Museum of the City of New York (1220 Fifth Avenue)

The Museum of the City of New York (MCNY), as part of its ongoing program New York’s Future in a Changing Climate, will present a panel discussion on the city’s future energy system.

Urban areas account for nearly three-quarters of humanity’s greenhouse gas emissions. What can be done in order to mitigate the amount of emissions that New York City produces? In the face of changing demand, leaders in the industry are striving towards new forms of renewable energy. Ranging from community solar power networks to more efficient building methods – the face of energy is beginning to shift. Join innovators on the forefront of this industry for a conversation about what the future holds for NYC.
