BRINGING CANADIAN RENEWABLES TO NYC


To reduce building emissions and encourage electrification, New York City will need to transition to a greener grid in the near future. And while solar and wind can contribute, Canada's massive hydropower capabilities could dramatically increase NYC's clean energy supply.

Join Urban Green and the Consulate General of Canada for a Global Exchanges event on October 23. Expert panelists from New York and Hydro-Quebec will discuss the proposed Champlain Hudson Power Express transmission project and its potential to drive compliance with LL97.
