New York's Greenhouse Gas Stakeholder Opportunity 2004-2007
The New York State Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative stakeholder process provided opportunities to discuss issues with other participants and staff from the state departments of Environmental Conservation and Public Service. Members of the public were invited to attend the meetings. Details of those meetings are available on this website.
Between 2003 and 2007, New York State convened stakeholders 14 times, concurrently with the RGGI regional stakeholder process. At NYS RGGI Stakeholder Group meetings, DEC staff brief New York stakeholders on progress and issues, and stakeholders provide informal input to agency representatives. Information from the staff briefings is available through the Greenhouse Gas Meeting Presentations link.
New York's regulations are the culmination of these dozens of public stakeholder meetings, which included energy industry representatives and non-governmental agencies.
