The Green Communities Act and Municipalities: Exploring Municipal Trends in All Things Green

Mark Sylvia, Department of Energy Resources, Green Communities Division, and Deborah Donovan, Energy Markets - Cambridge Energy Alliance, will be joining us at this brown bag lunch.

The Green Communities Act, most notably through provisions creating the Green Communities Division at the Department of Energy Resources, encourages municipalities to maximize opportunities to save energy, to generate renewable energy, and to make other decisions that reduce their environmental impact and carbon footprint in order to help the Commonwealth become a hub of the 21st century clean energy economy.

This brown bag will:

  • highlight current initiatives of the Green Communities Division,
  • feature “on-the-ground” stories from the Cambridge Energy Alliance, which illustrate some of the creative initiatives implemented and challenges confronted by municipalities that go green, and
  • discuss municipal trends generally in relation to all things green.
