Earth911 Podcast: Making Buffalo, New York, a Livable, Equitable Climate Haven

A key advantage Buffalo enjoys is that hydropower from Niagara Falls provides an energy surplus today. This has attracted, among other startups, a $298M hydrogen production facility, Plug Power, that will rely on hydropower to refine its hydrogen fuel. In addition, the city has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by 36% compared to 2005 levels and is working to meet the 50% target set by the Paris Accord by 2030.
