Accelerating Large-Scale Wind and Solar Energy in New York

With an aim of identifying barriers to renewable energy development in New York and developing strategies to reduce those hurdles, The Nature Conservancy (the Conservancy) and the Alliance for Clean Energy New York (ACE NY) convened the Renewables on the Ground Roundtable. The Roundtable brought together 37 individuals representing the wind and solar industries, conservation organizations, and land use planning and local government experts. A number of representatives from New York State agencies also participated as impartial observers and provided expertise. The participants worked toward reaching consensus on the issues and solutions and provided comments at every stage of the drafting process, but the Conservancy and ACE NY are responsible for the final content of the report.
