Inside this month’s Total Energy News you will find a reality check about global progress relative to our climate targets , emerging municipal policy efforts to address building energ y, and new technologies potentially impacting energy distribution in VT. You’ll also find information about efforts by VT organizations , communities , and policymakers to address our climate challenges and opportunities. We’re also drawing attention to the recently released Vermont Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory and Forecast: Brief 1990 – 2016 from the Agency of Natural Resources.
The beginning of the legislative session provides an opportunity for VT to make breakthrough progress on a policy framework that will mobilize a total energy transformation. Network members and public partners will be actively working on their legislative priorities, and EAN core staff will work to provide reliable information and analysis to inform ongoing debate. With that goal in mind, we look forward to releasing our 2019 Annual Progress Report for Vermont on Wednesday, March 11 th . We also hope you’ll join us for an event on Wednesday January 22 nd, exploring how emissions reduction mandates like the GWSA have driven action and emissions reductions in other states, including Massachusetts and Maine.
