Recognizing trends in technological innovation and system security, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo established the Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) in March 2015. This new energy initiative includes ambitious clean energy targets, such as:
- 600 trillion Btu in energy efficiency gains, a 23 percent reduction from 2012 in building energy consumption
- 40 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 levels
- 50 percent of electricity generation coming from carbon-free renewables.
