Grumet lauds New York competition for innovative energy projects
New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has announced funding for a new energy competition that will award up to $20 million for the most forward-thinking, advanced energy projects in Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Yonkers. First proposed by the Governor in 2014, the projects aim to reduce energy costs by as much as $400 million annually, lower carbon emissions, and support clean energy technologies and jobs.
Jason Grumet, president of the Bipartisan Policy Center said, "New York State’s program is an example of what can be achieved by combining state data and resources with local creativity and business savvy. New York residents will get a more resilient, reliant and cost-effective system."
