Massachusetts: A Case Study on Climate Action and Energy Finance

Massachusetts: A Case Study on Climate Action and Energy Finance

April 25, 2016 @ 5:30 PM

Larry Chretien, executive director of the Mass Energy Consumers Alliance (Mass Energy), will provide an update on progress the Commonwealth is making towards its legally binding commitment to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 80% by 2050. He will discuss how that progress is influencing patterns of energy consumption and investment, presenting Massachusetts as a microcosm for the nation and other developed countries that have yet to realize accomplishments of places like Germany or Denmark. 

Larry has been executive director of Mass Energy for sixteen years and holds a bachelor’s in resource management and a master’s in economic policy.  He is also a member of the Mass. Energy Efficiency Advisory Council. 

Mass Energy, a nonprofit organization with a mission to make energy more affordable and environmentally sustainable, blends direct service with multiple energy-related programs and advocacy (mostly at the state level) in Massachusetts and Rhode Island where it does business as People’s Power & Light.  Among other things, Mass Energy is a green power supplier, offering consumers an opportunity to meet their electricity needs with in-state renewable energy sources. 

Thank you to UUA for the use of their space once again.
