“We quickly wanted to get in on the ground floor of this exciting event-driven platform because it is needed in Boston. The Northeast is a hub for energy innovation, and we have high hopes that connecting all sectors of the industry in this forum will drive business and boost the clean energy economy.” – Tom Burton, Chair of the Mintz Energy & Sustainability Practice
