The Power of Waste workshop, co-hosted by Energy Vision, Long Island Clean Cities Coalition and the Advanced Energy Research & Technology Center (AERTC) at Stony Brook University, introduced renewable natural gas (RNG) as a new frontier for transportation. New York State is poised to take the lead toward a cleaner, economical, and locally-sourced energy future. The use of locally-produced RNG will reduce greenhouse gases, foster the development of clean energy projects in-state, and incentivize the responsible handling of waste.

The Power of Waste brought together municipal leaders, environmental professionals, policymakers, project developers, waste managers and agricultural professionals to strategize ways to bring projects to market and integrate RNG into the greenhouse gas reduction strategies of government and industry. The workshop also educated attendees on the logistics and physical components of an RNG project. For the full workshop agenda, Click Here.
