Accelerating Our Transition to a Clean Energy Economy (Boston, MA) EcoSalonMonday, March 10, 2014 (12:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern)
The transition to a clean energy economy is well within our grasp. Renewable energy accounted for about 35% all new electric generation installed in 2013 and NREL estimates that renewables could supply 80% of total U.S. electricity generation by 2035. Because of energy-efficiency, power usage is on track to decline in 2013 for the third year in a row, to its lowest point since 2001.
Despite the current partisan gridlock in Congress, we are moving forward with a 21st century energy system. Please join our distinguished panel of experts--Congressman Joe Kennedy; Professor Joseph Aldy, Assistant Professor at the Harvard Kennedy School, a Nonresident Fellow at Resources for the Future, and former Special Assistant to the President for Energy and Environment at the White House; and NRDC Climate and Clean Air Director Dan Lashof--to explore the actions and policy framework that can accelerate our transition to a clean energy economy. Invitations will be sent in February. Contact email@example.com with any questions.

We’ve been following the progress of NY Green Bank since Governor Cuomo’s State of the State address in January 2013. With initial capitalization from NYSERDA and RGGI, and a recently issued request for partnership proposal, NY Green Bank is now open for business.
NY Green Bank aims to enable greater private investment in New York State’s growing clean energy economy by opening up financing markets and expanding availability of capital, through innovative financing solutions and strategic partnerships with private sector intermediaries. NY Green Bank is a part of Governor Cuomo’s strategic statewide plan to scale up clean energy, enhance New York State’s competitiveness for clean energy businesses, and make energy systems more resilient and reliable.
