1. Imagine a NY Sunset Date for Fossil Fuel Heating...

At the Wednesday, Nov. 19 meeting of the a Energy Efficiency and Housing Advisory Panel (EE&HAP) to the NYS Climate Action Council, the graphic below was presented as an illustrative example of how codes could be changed to help meet the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) goals for the heating sector.

This slide hasn't yet been fully discussed or adopted (or uploaded to the CAC website) by the EE&HAP and may need legislative approval for provisions that would be needed for adoption. But it is an important vision that many believe is crucial to meeting the CLCPA goals.

The timeline below would end fossil fuels in new single-family homes by 2025 and end new and replacement fossil fuel heating system sales by 2030.

Look for the presentation to go up on the Advisory Panels Meetings and Materials EE&HAP website soon.

Here is the proposal NY-GEO has developed of a glide path to sunset fossil fuels in the heating sector.

2. Climate Action Council Meeting Summaries

Anastasia Gordon, from the Alliance for Clean Energy New York (ACE)—of which is a NY-GEO member—has been compiling summaries of the meetings of the New York State Climate Action Council (CAC) and its several Advisory Panels. ACE has compiled an incredible resource, and the latest accounts can be found at the top of the page.

Check out the summaries and then go to the CAC website for more in-depth notes on meetings of particular interest.

Thank you Anastasia!

3. Acton to Present on NY Heating Sector Transformation

Jerry Acton, a Complex Systems Architect with the GreyEdge Group, LLC, will be presenting at the next weekly NY-GEO Friday meeting, December 4, from 3-4 PM. He will address the transition in New York’s heating sector needed to comply with New York's Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA).

Acton is the only person we know who has presented, in detail, the number of conversions from fossil fuel heating to heat pumps necessary to occur each year to meet the CLCPA’s greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals. In addition, he has done so using the CLCPA's methane 20-year time frame and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Global Warming Potential (CO2 equivalent) of methane as 86.

Acton filed impressive testimony in the National Grid upstate rate case (Case Nos. 20-E-0380 & 20-G-0381) on Friday, Nov. 27. See the exhibits here.
