1/26 Green Muni Summit

Join us for our fifth Green Muni Summit in Grafton, Massachusetts. 

This summit will continue on the momentum we have built over the past four Green Muni Summits. In the morning we will talk about updates in the world of climate and Munis. The featured speaker will be David Farnsworth of the Regulatory Assistance Project. 

In order to get to 100% renewable energy sector wide, we will have to eventually electrify everything, from heating buildings to transportation, and Munis are uniquely positioned to speed that process up. This process is called electrification, and when it is done strategically it is called beneficial electrification. Energy efficiency and renewable portfolios are key to this process. David will explore the various components that go into making sure it's done well. Agenda coming soon.
