Energy Vision proposes biogas for New York

Energy Vision (EV) was featured in a Letter to the Editor in the New York Times — written by EV founder Joanna Underwood — in response to a recent editorial highlighting the growing push for the City to divest from all fossil fuel investments (“Another Day of Reckoning for Big Oil”).

The letter highlights the opportunity and need for New York CIty to not only divest, but also to invest in and deploy proven climate solutions like renewable natural gas (RNG) made from decomposing organic waste:

“Kudos to Mayor Bill de Blasio for acting to counter our dangerous dependence on fossil fuels. While it’s valuable that New York City is suing and divesting from fossil fuel companies, championing sustainable fuels must begin at home.

The mayor should begin mothballing not only the S.U.V.s that accompany him but also the city’s roughly 5,600 heavy-duty municipal trucks that consume 60% of fleet fuel and generate at least 60% of its greenhouse gas emissions. The city should invest in turning our food waste and wastewater into clean, renewable biogas fuel that could power all these vehicles.

If Sacramento, Toronto and Portland, Ore., can fuel their fleets with biogas fuel, why not New York?”
