Acadia Center is grateful to our friends and colleagues who made it out to Boston’s District Hall on a rainy Monday night to share in conversation about realistic pathways to a brighter, clean energy future.

Acadia Center provided updates on efforts to re-energize state leadership to address climate change, reduce emissions and advance clean energy. Staff experts were on-hand to answer questions and engage in discussion on key issues such as extending MA’s leadership on energy efficiency; increasing incentives and infrastructure for electric vehicles; harnessing solar power and other clean energy resources; and, leveraging RGGI and carbon markets.

Posters with infographics and charts helped jumpstart conversation and showcased a key element of Acadia Center’s approach: credible research with user-friendly visual presentation that tells a story. Some recent publications include EnergyVision and UtilityVision, which illustrate pathways to deep carbon reductions and a consumer-friendly energy system.
