Renewable Energy's Future in New England: 118th New England Restructuring Roundtable
Posted Aug 24 2010 12:00am
Location: Boston, MA
9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
The first Fall Roundtable of 2010 focuses on renewable energy's future in New England. Renewable energy installations of all types (wind, biomass, solar, landfill gas) have been proliferating in New England, while Renewable Portfolio Standards continue to ratchet-up. At the same time, recent developments have introduced significant uncertainty into the renewable energy markets in New England. These include the failure to enact federal legislation to price carbon, the uncertain status of future federal renewable tax credits, the TransCanada law suit, the EIPC transmission and renewable planning process, and the biomass study for MA DOER by Manomet.
The two panels at the September Roundtable will examine the net effect of these and other factors impacting renewable energy development in New England. One will be a high level, cross-cutting panel whose speakers will share their expectations about the future of renewables in New England. A second panel will dive into the complex world of biomass carbon accounting and sustainable biomass issues.
The Restructuring Roundtables are free and open to the public. Advanced registration is not required.
The Restructuring Roundtable has been meeting bimonthly since 1995 to discuss current topics related to revolutionary changes in the electric power industry in Massachusetts and throughout New England.
