Keynote Speaker: Richard Heinberg!*
The theme of the day is: A Common Agenda: Transforming Vermont’s Energy Future. The day is aimed at supporting and growing the statewide network of town energy committees and building the capacity and expertise of any Vermonter interested in helping the state meet its ambitious but essential goal of getting 90% of our energy in 2050 through renewable sources.
Workshops range from seizing solar in 2016 to the legislative look forward, from pioneering rural transportation solutions to measuring, assessing and prioritizing energy action – and and many more timely, informative sessions.
Each workshop is aimed at building the expertise and capacity of grassroots energy leaders and building the kind of broad, diverse public support for needed energy and climate action.
