NYC OFFSHORE WIND RACE: Mayor Bill de Blasio will tease new green initiatives in his annual “State of the City” address on Thursday, including a new investment to create an offshore wind hub in Brooklyn. De Blasio will pledge to invest $57 million in the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal to help support nearby offshore wind production, a City Hall spokesperson said. The funding had previously been included in the Economic Development Corporation’s budget to reinvigorate the terminal as a maritime port, but will now go toward supporting the staging, installation and maintenance of offshore wind. The city expects the wind hub to be running in 2023 and to create 500 new jobs.

CLIMATE ACTION COUNCIL: The 22-person Climate Action Council, created as part of New York’s sweeping new emissions reduction law passed last year, is tasked with crafting a draft plan to achieve those goals within two years and finalizing it before Jan. 1, 2023. This is the fourth in a planned 10-part series of interviews with the members of council who are not state officials.
