NYC as World’s Green Capital

A group called Earth Energy Economy LLC or E3 plans to organize “the world’s largest urban cleantech event” in 2014. The event would be focused along the East River in 5 key concentrated activity zones in each borough. The zones will feature green transit hubs that would offer a combination of bike-share, electric car-share, electric shuttles and water taxis. The greatest purpose of the event is to accelerate the development of a cleantech industry cluster to be known as the “East River Clean Technology Corridor”. Demonstration projects will begin in 2011 with Dekalb Station serving as the first beta site.

Additionally, E3 is co-sponsoring ONE PRIZE: an Annual Design and Science Award to Promote Green Design in Cities. This year the design competition is soliciting ideas of ways to envision New York’s waterways as the “Sixth Borough of New York City.” The competition is a response to the city’s waterfront vision plan, and the jury will be chaired by Amanda Burden, New York City Planning Commissioner Chair.
