Are you interested in the future of renewable energy and green buildings in Massachusetts? How about meeting one of the core legislators focusing on the sustainable future of the state? Then don't miss this event tonight! We will be hosting an evening with Senator Benjamin Downing, the Senate chair of the committee overseeing clean energy and green building policy. He will be discussing his role and impact on the legislation, and bringing green jobs to the Commonwealth.
We are also joined by Betsy Glynn from the Center for Sustainable Energy, Steve Cowel from E2 (Environmental Entrepreneurs), and Peter Shattuck from Acadia Center.
Topics of discussion will include:
- Strategies to transform residential or commercial (or both) building stock.
- How to bring jobs to Massachusetts through a “green transformation.”
- Legislation that preserves Massachusetts's #1 national rank in energy efficiency.
- Balancing public utilities, legislators and the public as we move forward with energy policy.
Q&A session will follow.
