Restructuring Roundtable: Onward Energy Efficiency in New England
February 15, 2013 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
New England states have been national leaders in energy efficiency for some time now – with four of our states in ACEEE’s Top 10 rankings (and Massachusetts overtaking California for the number 1 spot). Never a region to rest on its laurels, we continue to look for ways to improve the depth and effectiveness of our energy-efficiency efforts.
Join Raab Associates for the 133rd Electricity Restructuring Roundtable as the invited panelists explore several major new energy-efficiency related trends and developments in the region and discuss potential new energy- efficiency-related frontiers New England states are tackling, including:
- Massachusetts’ new three-year utility energy efficiency programs budgets (approval by MA DPU required by end of January)
- Connecticut’s new statewide Energy Plan which covers energy efficiency, renewables, natural gas, and other energy-related issues (release expected prior to the 2/15 Roundtable)
- PACE Financing for EE Investments – Connecticut recently began one of first programs in the world, announced 1.24.13, and MA DOER just issued a report on PACE financing for Massachusetts customers
- ISO New England’s 2013 Energy Efficiency Forecast for 2016-2022 (which shows huge dampening effect on energy and demand growth due to EE)
- A preview of NEEP’s REED – the Regional Energy Efficiency Database – which will be released to the public February 19
- Other efficiency related developments; building energy labeling, efficiency funds for oil heated structures, building codes, etc.
Leading the discussion of these developments will be:
- Commissioner Mark Sylvia, Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources
- Jessie Stratton, Policy Director/Acting Deputy for Energy, CT DEEP
- Stephen Rourke, VP System Planning, ISO New England
- Susan Coakley, Executive Director, Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships
Registration is not required, but attendees are encouraged to arrive early as the room fills quickly (and no one ever seems to want to go into the overflow room, despite the comfortable chairs there). Information about the Restructuring Roundtable, and presentations from previous sessions, is available here on the Raab Associates web site.
