Event Description

The Residential Green Building Committee is focused on improving the housing stock of the Commonwealth by championing green building practices in our communities. Join us on the second Monday of each month to be a part of the movement.

Guest Speaker this Month: David Lis of NEEP

Culminating two years of research by authoritative trio of Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP), Synapse Energy Economics and Meister Consultants, the Action Plan offers a new strategy for closing the troubling carbon reduction gap in the New England states and New York. Electrification describes the adoption of electric end use technologies by displacement of fossil fuel combustion in heating, transportation and industry. There are significant added benefits to health and safety lower energy use and cost as well as decreased pollution. Electrification also enables the decarbonized generation of power.

The Action Plan calls for an integrated strategy of displacing at major scale use of fossil fuels in buildings transportation and industry. Although enabling technologies are largely in place, formidable challenges, including those of policy, economics and infrastructure, need to addressed. The Action Plan outlines a well-conceived, unified program of priority actionable measures and parallel research to accelerate carbon reduction across all seven states.
