Lessons Learned from NYPA's Five Cities Energy Program - A Climate Smart Communities Webinar

Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Energy planning is a centerpiece of vibrant, growing communities. Energy planning can include everything from transportation to outdoor lighting to building management. The New York Power Authority (NYPA) established the Five Cities Energy Program to demonstrate the value of municipal energy planning and to create a process that other cities can follow. This Climate Smart Communities webinar will offer an overview of the program’s vision and the phases it has been through since launching in 2015. Speakers will describe some of the energy plans and projects of the five cities (Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Yonkers) and lessons learned for other municipalities.

Please provide us with your name and community affiliation, either via email or telephone to the Office of Climate Change at or 518-402-8448. In the event that we cancel or postpone this webinar, respondents will be notified.
