Update on Massachusetts Clean Energy & Climate Plan 2020
Guest Speaker: Ned Bartlett, Undersecretary EOEEA

On December 31, 2015, Secretary Beaton released the Updated Massachusetts Clean Energy & Climate Plan 2020 (CECP Update) that emphasizes initiatives that address energy challenges that face residents and businesses across Massachusetts. The CECP Update presents the policies upon which the Baker-Polito Administration will rely to position the Commonwealth to meet the emissions reductions goals of the Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA).

This EBC Climate Change Committee meeting will feature Ned Bartlett, Deputy Secretary of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, who will review the policies necessary to achieve GWSA and discuss the strategies that best reduce greenhouse gas emissions for our immediate and long term targets. This 2015 CECP Update identifies two policies in particular that when fully implemented will result in immediate and substantial benefits:

  • The import of cost-effective, low-carbon hydroelectric power generation and Class-1 renewable resources; and
  •  Vehicle GHG emissions standards.
