Policy SummaryIssued in 2009, and updated in 2014, New York's State Energy Plan provides a framework for the State to meet its future energy needs in a cost-effective and sustainable way, establishes policy objectives, and sets recommendations and strategies to achieve those objectives. In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, the draft Plan reiterates the need to encourage DG through additional technical and financial support, and removal of any barriers to interconnection of DG to the electric grid. The Plan also encourages in-state renewable energy development through its Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), which has a goal of providing 30% of New York's electricity through renewables. The updated draft Plan no longer explicitly mentions CHP. To help meet that goal, the Plan recommends the DEC "establish regulatory standards to foster increased use of cleaner distributed resources while maintaining air quality and supporting reliability needs."
