The Pace Energy & Climate Center, the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection, and the Univ. of Connecticut Center for Energy & Environmental Law are co-sponsoring a community workshop on "Community Energy Planning." It will be held on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 in the Legislative Office Building in Hartford, Connecticut. Here are the details:
What does energy distribution of the future look like? How might weshare the costs and benefits of energy production--among neighbors, within large-scale institutions, or even virtually? The Pace Energy & Climate Center has taken the lead in planning an all-day community workshop dealing with these issues, and CEEL is happy to serve as a local cosponsor. In the morning, DEEP Commissioner Daniel Esty and others will be introducing a vision for community energy in this state, regionally, and nationally. The afternoon panels will focus on municipal issues, project considerations (grid planning, regulation, and finance), and advancing community energy projects. Panelists include local officials, business leaders, state policymakers, and academics. Attendance is complimentary with advanced RSVP to Kayleigh Hough at firstname.lastname@example.org.
