National Grid’s “Northeast 80×50 Pathway” is a blueprint for the region to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050 (“80×50”). The first of its kind in the Northeast, the Pathway spans seven states (New York and the six New England states), and addresses the three main sectors of emissions: transportation, electricity, and heat. New York Governor Cuomo  recently announced even more ambitious emissions reduction goals, specifically a carbon neutral electric sector by 2040. Building on the momentum of this announcement, this event will bring together interested parties from across the energy industry to collaborate on charting the path forward for our region’s climate and energy goals. Alicia Barton, President and CEO of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), will be offering the keynote. For more information, click here.
