Clean Energy & Resiliency for Small Towns

Small towns confront different challenges than do larger, more urban communities, often in terms of density, resources, infrastructure, and connectivity to funding, outreach, and technical assistance. This session will offer a facilitated discussion that seeks to illuminate strategies that small towns in New England are utilizing to have a big(ger) impact on the building energy sector. Come learn from a regional planning agency, an institute supporting island communities in Maine, a Massachusetts suburb, and a large electric and gas utility to gain an understanding of how an ecosystem of actors, resources, and support systems can bolster the energy efficiency and resiliency of a small town’s built environment.
