Please join us at a first-of-its kind Environmental Business Council (EBC) conference that will bring together the energy leaders from each of the six New England states. This EBC program will highlight each state’s energy plan, program priorities and implementation strategies. They will also describe the various ways the states are working together on regional energy issues.

Topics include:

  • Energy Efficiency
  • Renewable Energy including Wind, Solar, Hydro, Biomass
  • Energy Storage
  • Electric Vehicles
  • BioDiesel
  • Clean Energy Jobs
  • Emerging Technologies

Also participating is ISO New England, the organization that is authorized by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to perform three critical, complex, interconnected roles – grid operation, market administration, and power system planning for the region.

A robust panel discussion between the speakers and the attendees will conclude the program.
