This past Thursday, October 20th, Anthony Brooks and Meghna Chakrabarti talked with Green Needham Chair Michael Greis and Massachusetts Energy Undersecretary Barbara Kates-Garnick about the green economy, the 2020 clean energy plan, energy efficiency & “green living” at the local level and the upcoming Needham Summit on Energy and the Environment.

With the backdrop of that morning’s announcement that Massachusetts had taken the top spot from California in 2011 ACEEE state rankings for energy efficiency, our extended discussion was an opportunity to talk about the interplay of state policies and community-level action in creating the clean energy economy.
