New York City has pledged to reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050 (80x50), and emissions from city government operations 35 percent by 2025 (35x25). The City is issued a Request for Information (“RFI”) seeking responses from all entities involved in and supporting the renewable energy sector. This RFI is designed to identify new generation capacity rather than existing sources of renewable energy. City government currently spends between $600 million and $650 million per year on its electricity, and could potentially use its purchasing power to catalyze the development of new sources of renewable power, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and chart a path to receive 100 percent of electricity from renewable sources of energy.
