As New York City continues to grow, energy requirements grow with it. Without cheap energy, business development is dampened and consumers pay a greater portion of income on energy. In the context of climate change and proposed emission limits for our built environment, how the the cost of cleaner energy is shared by different sectors of the economy will determine the nature of development going forward.
