Every year, Mass Energy Consumers Alliance hosts an Annual Meeting, bringing together members, partners and allies to reflect upon the last year,
discuss what’s ahead for the company, and honor those who exemplify Mass Energy’s vision of affordable and sustainable energy.
On Tuesday, November 18, 2014, Mass Energy is hosting its 32nd Annual Meeting at Le Meridien Hotel in Cambridge.
Attending the event is featured speaker, Juliet Schor, an economist widely known for her work on the interrelated issues of, leisure, and consumption. She has unique perspectives on energy and climate change, made evident in her national best-seller, The Overworked American: The Unexpected Decline of Leisure. Schor is also a professor of sociology at Boston College.
Also attending the event are three award recipients, honored for their work and leadership in the clean and renewable energy industry: Mothers Out Front, NEEP (Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships), and Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone and wife Nancy.
Mothers Out Front is a grassroots group with the goal of switching thousands of households to clean power and committing Massachusetts to no new fossil fuel infrastructure.
NEEP (Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships) is a regional non-profit that increases and coordinates energy efficiency and market transformation efforts in the US Northeast.
Mayor Joseph and Nancy Curtatone are at the forefront of sustainable living by helping to lead by example. They have chosen to meet their electricity needs with zero-emission renewable energy from Massachusetts projects.
The annual meeting is an opportunity to network and hear from influential members from the renewable energy industry. It also serves to unite individuals and organizations committed to advocacy and outreach.
