Strengthening New York's Position as the Hub of the U.S. Offshore Wind Industry: 

In 2020, NYSERDA will issue its second solicitation for offshore wind facilities, which is expected to yield at least an additional 1,000 megawatts of clean power. NYSERDA, DOT and ESD will also initiate a competitive process to award $200 million in public investments in port infrastructure improvements.

Training Workers for the Green Economy: 

New York will create an industry-driven green jobs training program to address the need for an energy workforce. First,the Excelsior Automotive Technician Task Force will broaden the scope of its work to include electric vehicles. New York State will also invest an additional $40 million — for a total investment of $100 million — over the next five years to build a talent pipeline of clean energy workers and provide the existing workforce with opportunities to enhance their skills. In addition, SUNY Farmingdale and Stony Brook will formally solicit partners for its $20 million Offshore Wind Training Institute, so that training can begin in 2021. Finally, Parks and DEC will partner with Hudson Valley Community College, Alfred State University, Excelsior Corps and Job Corps to create a Solar Energy Corps to train students to install solar energy equipment.
