Energy & Sustainability Event Highlights – February 2020

Event Highlights


Mintz, The Brattle Group, and NECEC Co-Host the Northeast Region Emissions Reduction Summit 

February 6–7 // Boston, MA

Join Mintz, NECEC, and The Brattle Group as we host energy industry thought leaders and key stakeholders across the Northeast for an invitation-only summit to facilitate thoughtful dialogue and generate prioritized next steps toward the deep GHG emissions reductions that all Northeastern states have committed to achieving by 2050. A new study prepared by economists at The Brattle Group found that achieving these goals will require aggressive action, not least of which would be to scale up annual renewable deployment to between five to seven times the current level. New England must accelerate the addition of clean energy resources and, at present, there are a number of barriers to success. We want to provide a forum for open discussions across regions to enhance collaboration and drive adoption and solutions for these reduction goals. Learn more here.
