The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) recently released the Clean Power Plan, designed to reduce carbon pollution from existing power plants 32 percent by 2030. Each state has considerable flexibility to meet this goal; in New Hampshire this incudes developing additional renewable energy capacity and increasing efficiency. New Hampshire is becoming wetter and warmer. The influences of changing long-term climate patterns on roads and bridges, electricity supply, local economies and business operations are becoming more evident. • What does the Clean Power Plan it mean for New Hampshire? • How do existing state policies relate to the Clean Power Plan? • Should resilience to our shifting weather patterns be part of the discussion? On Wednesday, September 23rd over buffet lunch, join members of the NH Businesses for Social Responsibility, Environmental Business Council of New England, and the NH Clean Tech Council for presentations and discussions with EPA Region I to learn more about the Clean Power Plan and the economic opportunities it presents.
