We cordially invite you to a REMI policy luncheon in Boston, Massachusetts from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on December 12th.
Successful economies depend on reliable sources of energy, but the hunger for energy can pose difficult policy questions. With the EPA implementing new rules to curb carbon emissions, policy makers are under more pressure than ever to get the answers right. States must understand how much energy do they need, how much can they reduce demand through conservation efforts, and where should they seek energy alternatives.
This presentation will examine a range of energy-related topics – from the payback time on solar energy investments to carbon pricing, in light of current regulations and political direction. Governor-elect Charlie Baker and state legislators likely will be looking at reducing demand for fossil fuels through increased public transit options and energy efficiency, while also evaluating the benefits of alternative sources such as offshore wind.
Lunch will be provided at no charge although we ask that you register in advance by filling out the form below, calling our office at 413-549-1169, or emailing Leah Jalbert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At REMI, our goal is to improve public policy. The information presented at this seminar will enable you to make more detailed and efficient forecasts about the economic effects of policy changes. There is no charge to attend these events; however, space is limited and advanced registration is required.
Registration is closed for this event.
