A group of scientists and energy analysts has charted a pathway in which New York could eliminate fossil fuels and nuclear power from its energy mix and become totally reliant on renewable sources of energy by 2050. New York's power requirement by 2030 could be met by 4,020 land-based 5-megawatt wind turbines or 12,770 offshore 5-MW wind turbines, according to the analysis, which is slated for publication in the journal Energy Policy.
