Will Address the Future of Clean Energy in Massachusetts
On Thursday, April 25, Governor Deval Patrick will address the future of clean energy in Massachusetts at the MIT Energy Initiative’s annual Earth Day Colloquium. Massachusetts is widely recognized as a leader in clean energy – ranking first in the nation in energy efficiency and having installed more than 300 megawatts of solar and wind capacity in the last six years. These accomplishments take on even greater significance in the aftermath of superstorm Sandy, which brought the urgent need for climate adaptation into sharp focus and underscored the critical importance of climate change mitigation through a strong clean energy agenda. Join us as we welcome Governor Deval Patrick to reflect on the Commonwealth’s leadership in clean energy and efforts to stay the course as economic challenges persist and climate vulnerabilities grow.
