Massachusetts Plans To Launch Clean Energy Council
More than 100 business people, venture capitalists, academics, and government officials representing 82 entities attended a Clean Energy Stakeholders Roundtable gathering and have agreed to launch a Massachusetts Clean Energy Council by fall, The Boston Globe reports.
Major details – including membership and officers – still need to be worked out. But after day-long conversations, backers said there appears to be broad support for goals such as: changing state building codes and utility regulation to promote conservation and alternative energy sources; offering stronger incentives possibly including tax breaks or utility-bill rebates to consumers and businesses; and setting higher requirements for state government to use renewable energy sources and more fuel-efficient vehicles.
