A New Energy Vision for New York State - New Models, New Markets (New York City) EcoSalonThursday, September 25, 2014 (7:45 AM - 9:15 AM Eastern)
New York State has embarked on an ambitious agenda to reform the energy vision and transition to a low carbon economy. The goals: to scale up clean energy; increase New York's competitiveness for clean energy businesses; make the state's energy systems more resilient and reliable; and to achieve the state's own goal of reducing carbon emissions 50% by 2030. Richard Kauffman, Chairman of Energy and Finance for New York and former Chair of Global Financing Group at Goldman Sachs, will be the guest speaker at this E2 breakfast held as part of NYC Climate Week. This is an opportunity to learn first-hand about the state's energy initiatives and to talk directly with one of the plan's chief architects about the opportunities for business. This is an invitation-only event. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.

Their actions at the local level are having national and even global impact. Please join E2 and our distinguished panel -- Geoff Chapin, Founder & CEO of Next Step Living; Gary Cohen, President & Executive Director of Health Care Without Harm; and Brian Swett of the City of Boston -- to learn how local programs have morphed into major initiatives that are changing the landscape on climate and energy.

"The E2 DC Forum has provided me with unbelievable experiences each time I have attended! From the insight of the guest speakers who are involved in these day-to-day issues in their positions in Washington, D.C., to learning how to communicate our thoughts in a professional manner to legislators, to sitting with members of Congress and their staff to discuss topics and issues critical to our businesses and our country, these few days in DC make a difference!"
