The New Hampshire climate and appetite for renewable energy opportunities have been growing modestly. With renewed focus at the State and Federal levels on environmental sustainability, home-sourcing of energy, and climate change, New Hampshire’s renewable energy options are on the table and open for development. Incentives and government support have been critical to getting renewable energy projects established in other states. In contrast, the success of renewable projects in New Hampshire has depended on a web of government programs, unique opportunities, and the personal commitment of key stakeholders to environmental sustainability.
This EBC New Hampshire Chapter program on renewable energy brings together governmental decision-makers and business leaders to review the current regulatory climate for renewables in New Hampshire, the financing options for renewable projects in the state, New Hampshire renewables success stories, and the prospects for a renewable future in New Hampshire. The program will be moderated by Richard Kanoff and ML Geffert of the McLane Law Firm, which counsels renewable energy developers, utilities, financiers, and installers in New Hampshire and the region. Jack Ruderman, Director of the NH Public Utilities Commission’s Sustainable Energy Program, Kate Epsen, New Hampshire State Renewable Energy Association, and Karen Cramton, NH Office of Energy and Planning, will offer insights on the current state of New Hampshire’s laws, regulations, and policies on renewable generation. Financing experts will review key considerations for financing renewables projects in New Hampshire and credit supports currently available for these projects. Business leaders, including Clay Mitchell from Revolution Energy, LLC, and Amanda Osmer of the Grappone Automotive Group, will describe what it takes to get a renewable project built and operating in New Hampshire. This EBC program will also feature an informative discussion of what’s next for renewables in New Hampshire.
