EDF Pipeline Position Dispute July 08 2019, 0 Comments

From the Politico New York Energy newsletter (2019 06 27), The Environmental Defense Fund does not support the Williams Northeast Supply Enhancement pipeline, the group said on its website. The environmental group clarified its position after the Public Accountability Initiative's Rob Galbraith criticized EDF for engaging on and touting the study of the pipeline's effect on emissions compared to continued use of higher-carbon heating oils. That study, paid for by National Grid, used a 10-year window, which EDF said was not sufficient, and found emissions benefits to the pipeline.
