LOCAL is taking an active role in conversations about our energy futures. We believe that state and regional energy portfolios need to be expanded to include more clean and renewable sources. To that end, we are exploring business models and challenging assumptions about renewable energy and creating vivid alternatives to present day practices.
LOCALenergy is a wind energy – hybrid car infrastructure using NYC to catalyze a regional wind power network. It addresses two of our most significant energy needs: transportation and electricity production. It seeks to reduce dependency on fossil fuels in both sectors by linking wind power (because of its financial competitiveness with nonrenewable forms of electricity) and plug-in hybrid cars.
