EBC Climate Change Program: Massachusetts Clean Energy and Climate Plan for 2020

March 18, 2011 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

On December 29, 2010, the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs released the Massachusetts Clean Energy and Climate Plan for 2020, as required by the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2008.  The Plan establishes the most ambitious target identified for the reduction in GHG emissions — 25% below 1990 levels by 2020.  The Plan outlines the Commonwealth’s roadmap for how to reach that aggressive goal, including myriad policies and incentives that are expected to produce cost savings and job growth in the clean energy sector.
