Last year was a landmark year for climate action in New York. Governor Cuomo's nation-leading Green New Deal and the signing of the New York State Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) have put us at the forefront in lowering carbon emissions and advance a clean energy future with a just and equitable transition that is addressing the most pressing issue of our time – climate change.
Building on the momentum of our accomplishments, New York State is on the path to achieving a carbon free electricity system by 2040, an 85 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and ultimately a carbon-neutral economy, touching on all sectors including transportation, buildings and industrial production. With climate action featured prominently in Governor Cuomo's annual State of the State and Executive Budget addresses this year, NYSERDA's work to combat climate change, preserve the environment, and grow the green economy is more important than ever before.
I am therefore excited to share NYSERDA's 2020-2023 Strategic Outlook, which presents our key objectives and strategic focus areas while placing them into the broader context of New York's long-term energy policies and market landscape. The report highlights our increasing efforts to support New York's energy transformation through decarbonization of transportation, energy affordability and equity, electrification of buildings, and building a resilient energy system in support of NYSERDA's five mission outcomes:
Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction
A Distributed and Resilient Energy System
Building a Clean Energy Economy.
I hope you will take the time to review the Strategic Outlook and understand we cannot be successful in accelerating action to meet the needs of a changing energy landscape without participation from stakeholders like you. Together we will seize the opportunity to make Governor Cuomo's vision for a clean energy future a reality.
