In December 2015, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo directed the New York Department of Public Service (NYDPS) to come up with a plan to reach 50 percent renewables by 2030. The DPS subsequently opened the “Proceeding on Motion of the Commission to Implement a Large-Scale Renewable Program and a Clean Energy Standard” (Matter 15-E-0302), published a DPS Staff White Paper on the Clean Energy Standard, and commissioned the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to prepare a Clean Energy Standard Cost Study to complement the Staff White Paper.
