SECTION 1875
Legislative findings and declaration of intent
Public Authorities (PBA) CHAPTER 43-A, ARTICLE 8, TITLE 9
§ 1875. Legislative findings and declaration of intent. The
legislature hereby finds and declares that energy is essential to
maintain the industrial vitality of New York state. The legislature
further finds that, because of the state's limited indigenous energy
resource, efficient energy use is especially crucial to sustain its
competitive posture.

The legislature finds that many of the issues related to energy
efficiency in industry are associated with high temperature operations
and that insufficient research has been conducted to discover
technologies to increase the efficiency of these operations.

The legislature therefore declares that a coherent research program
focused on high temperature technology be established under the auspices
of the authority within a major university of the state. The legislature
further declares that such program shall further the energy conservation
objectives of the state and is an appropriate use of petroleum
overcharge restitution funds.
