Webinar - Meeting Decarbonization Goals: What's Needed Beyond Good Engineering? Hosted by Center for Energy Innovation

Please join the Center for Energy Innovation on Wednesday, October 2, at 1 p.m. as Jacqueline Ashmore, EVP of Engineering at Lowell-based New Leaf Energy, presents the virtual talk "Meeting Our Decarbonization Goals: What's Needed Beyond Good Engineering?"


Successful decarbonization relies on widespread electrification, increased energy efficiency, and sourcing electricity from clean energy. This presentation will focus on developing clean energy resources, with a particular emphasis on large scale solar power and energy storage. It will cover the increased support for the development of clean energy that is unleashing capital and generating stronger policy drivers for clean energy projects across the country. It will also examine the obstacles that remain including questions about land use, challenges with interconnection, and uncertainty about accessing incentives. A central theme is that engineering, policy, and financing are all important in accelerating the adoption of clean energy.
