May 21: Discussion on power and NYC's energy chain supply

The NYU Office of Government and Community Affairs is happy to promote the following free and public event from one of our neighbors: 
Join the Urban Future Lab for Where does NYC's electricity come from?, an illustrated conversation about power and NYC's energy supply chain. Valeria Mogilevich will speak about a recent "Urban Investigation" titled Power Trip. The project was a collaboration of CUP, teaching artist Samantha Contis, and NYC public high school students. To get to the source of New York City’s electricity infrastructure, the team interviewed energy experts and peered down manholes. They visited a local utility company headquarters, an upstate transmission monitoring center, and plenty of power plants – from Astoria to Co-op City.
