Energy

NYC is building a clean, resilient, and equitable energy system, and is committed to transforming our fossil fuel dependent electricity grid into one powered 100% by clean energy resources by 2040.

A just transition to a clean energy system is foundational to addressing climate change and creating a fairer and healthier city. To that end, New York City is committed to transforming our fossil fuel dependent electricity grid into one powered 100% by zero-emissions resources by 2040. Our clean electricity grid must be resilient to the impacts of climate change while affordable for all New Yorkers.

In 2022, the Mayor’s Office of Climate and Environmental Justice launched PowerUp NYC, an inclusive planning process to develop concrete actions City government can take in the next four years to put us on track to meeting our energy transition goals. Learn how you can get involved!
