ACCELERATING TO 80: Driving the Northeast’s Deep Decarbonization Targets

Highlights from the Northeast Region Emissions Reduction Summit co-hosted by Mintz, the Northeast Clean Energy Council (NECEC), and The Brattle Group. Stakeholders from government, industry, and advocacy groups brainstormed how the region can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050 while overcoming significant technical, market-based, and political barriers.

They identified a broad range of possible solutions, including fostering regional cooperation, reforming wholesale and retail electricity markets, developing policies to help clean energy providers increase their market share, utilizing creative financing vehicles for clean energy projects, and educating consumers and contractors.
