It has been entirely too long since I last updated this blog. By way of excuse, I was finally brought on full-time at my day job last April and so no longer had the same free time to devote to this project, and then once summer hit my life got a little hectic and I just never was able to dive back in.
That is about to change for 2011. There’s a full post coming later this week, but until then here is some recent news in the world of renewable energy in NYC:
- Gold Standard for Green Buildings Under Fire (Crain’s New York): The LEED guidelines are questioned; NYC commercial buildings will have to report on their energy usage.
- NYC Gets World’s First Hydrogen Ferry (AltTransport): The smoke pouring out of the diesel ferries is disgusting.
- Green Mountain Energy to Light Up American Icon (Austin American-Statesman): The Empire State Building plans to purchase all its electricity needs from wind power sources.
- State Governors Aim for More Solar Power in 2011 and Beyond (getsolar.com): Governor Cuomo campaigned on a green energy plan involving more incentives and increased use of solar thermal.
- Groups Issue Green ‘To-Do’ List for NY Governor and Lawmakers (Public News Service): What else Cuomo can be doing to help the environment, including investment in green energy.
