The State House News Forum is sponsoring a forum with government and business leaders on Wednesday, March 11th from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on the opportunities and obstacles for a carbon-free Greater Boston, the policy challenges ahead and panel discussions on Expanding Access to Direct Renewable Energy Sources and New Municipal and Institutional Practices and Policies. The event will be held at MCLE New England, 10 Winter Place in Boston.
The organizers say the urgency of climate change poses pressing challenges for government and business. They note that Boston has targeted 2050 as the year to become carbon neutral, a goal that would require shifting to new energy sources and procurement practices and setting new efficiency standards. In order to reach the carbon-free goal in 30 years, policies need to be implemented in the short-term, particularly expanding the generation and procurement of renewable energy.
Tickets are only $10. Light refreshments will be served. For more information and to buy tickets, go to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/agenda-for-a-carbon-free-greater-boston-tickets-93818342187
