our Mission

Beyond Indian Point is a campaign to move New York toward 100% renewable energy and energy efficiency as Indian Point shuts down in 2020 and 2021. The decision to shut down the Indian Point nuclear facility, reject fossil fuels and transition to clean energy and efficiency is a proud model for what we can achieve across New York State and the nation. Beyond Indian Point is a campaign by Alliance for a Green Economy, Frack Action, Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS), Food & Water Watch, and Riverkeeper.

The Transition Off Indian Point and On To 100% Renewable Energy

The Dangers

Indian Point is a very dangerous aging facility that puts millions of lives at risk.

The Dangers

In one 12-month period, Indian Point suffered seven major malfunctions including:

  • pump failures
  • power failures
  • a transformer explosion
  • radiation leaks
  • a fire
  • an oil spill
  • pump failures
  • power failures
  • a transformer explosion
  • radiation leaks
  • a fire
  • an oil spill

The Data

New York is in the process of replacing the Indian Point reactors with renewable energy and energy efficiency. A new independent research brief, released by Physicians, Scientists, and Engineers for Health Energy, finds that New York did not and does not need to build new gas plants to keep the lights on when Indian Point shuts down. The analysis also found that recent deployment, current development, and projected growth of renewable generation and energy efficiency will contribute nearly 45,000 GWh annually by 2025, almost three times the 16,000 GWh currently supplied by Indian Point.

The closure of Indian Point is critical for the health and safety of New Yorkers and will not jeopardize New York’s nation-leading greenhouse gas emissions targets.

The research brief also addresses the fact that wind and solar are intermittent energy sources. The analysis finds that pairing wind and solar with New York’s energy storage targets, which call for 1,500 MW of storage by 2025 and 3,000 MW by 2030, could provide the flexibility needed to meet real-time demand.
