On February 17th, 2021, YPE NYC and the Clean Energy Leadership Institute (CELI) hosted a virtual discussion with key players from the PEAK Coalition. This coalition brings together technical, legal, public health, and planning expertise to support organizing and advocacy led by communities harmed by peaker plant emissions in New York City.
Expert panelists from NYC Environmental Justice Alliance, NYSERDA, NYPA, and Clean Energy Group answered questions such as: How does each member organization contribute to the coalition? Why has the coalition approach been important to your efforts? What are the greatest challenges in implementing alternatives to peakers in NYC? What communities does your work impact? What have been some “key wins” for the coalition so far?
Clean Energy Group Vice President and Project Director Seth Mullendore participated.
