NEEP’s 2017 Strategic Electrification Summit will bring together public officials, energy and air regulators, industry, and advocates to discuss recent research regarding opportunities and pathways associated with electrifying those segments of our building stock, transportation sector, and industry that are currently on direct use of fossil fuels. The Northeast’s unique dependence on fossil fuels and combination of policy leadership to reduce carbon emissions, climate vulnerability, and infrastructure position it well to be a national leader in the shift toward economy-wide decarbonization enabled, in part, by energy efficiency strategic electrification. But questions remain: “What are the opportunities, benefits and challenges of strategic electrification?” and “How do we get there from here?”
We are pround to announce that David W. Cash, Ph.D., Dean of John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies, UMass Boston will be our Keynote speaker.
The registrations are now open to the public. The number of seats are limited so please make sure to buy your ticket in advance. In case the summit is sold out, you will be able to add yourselves to a waiting list through the registration link below.
