Set a goal, make a plan, and take action. It sounds like a phrase from a book of motivational sayings, but that's effectively what stakeholders are doing to advance ambitious clean energy policy in states across the nation.
In this week's State Bulletin, we take a look at recent state-level plans to accelerate cleantech adoption and cut emissions. Plus, a roundup of the latest state clean energy policy news.
Massachusetts: The Massachusetts State Senate recently passed a comprehensive clean energy bill — the “Act to Promote a Clean Energy Future” — with several provisions designed to address climate change while strengthening the state’s economy.
New York: New York governor Andrew Cuomo released the state’s comprehensive Energy Storage Roadmap this week, with the aim of jump-starting technology development and supporting Cuomo’s target to deploy 1,500 megawatts of storage by 2025 — the equivalent electricity demand of one-fifth of all New York homes.
Achieving the target is projected to create 30,000 jobs and deliver approximately $2 billion gross lifetime benefits to New Yorkers, while making the grid cleaner and more reliable.
Nevada: Clean energy industry members and advocates have released a policy road map that seeks to encourage the next governor of Nevada to harness the economic potential and jobs opportunities the clean energy industry has to offer. The Clean Energy Project and Advanced Energy Economy delivered the road map this month to the gubernatorial campaigns of Republican nominee Adam Laxalt and Democratic nominee Steve Sisolak.
The reporter also covers movements in Calif., Col., N.C., S.C., and Tenn.
