ELECTRICITY MARKETS AT A CROSSROADS: HOW TO ACHIEVE DECARBONIZATION WHILE MAINTAINING RELIABILITY & AFFORDABILITY
WHAT: NECA Annual Power Markets Conference
WHERE: Waltham Woods Conference Center, 860 Winter Street, Waltham, MA
WHEN: Monday, December 5, 2022 from 9 am to 4 pm
The New England electricity market, like many other electricity markets around the world, is at a crossroads. There is near consensus that the status quo is not sustainable and market reforms are necessary. But there is disagreement among stakeholders, experts, and regulators on the best approach forward. To facilitate the search for a workable solution – the right path to be taken – NECA is proposing a frank and open discussion of the key issues facing the New England electricity market – the search for reliability while maintaining affordability during the decarbonization transition. In addition, given the necessity of having customer cooperation and supplementing utility-scale resources with distributed energy resources to achieve policy goals of decarbonization, the last panel of the day will consider how the traditional delineation between wholesale and retail markets is shifting and perhaps fading. At the end of the day, we hope that we will be one step closer to a roadmap that will guide us towards the right path.

SWEP EVENT — The Economy of Kindness: How Kindness Transforms Your Bottom Line
Join the Society of Women Environmental Professionals, Massachusetts Chapter (SWEP-MA) for this online event with Linda Cohen.
What is the impact of kindness? In this highly interactive program, Cohen shares how kindness in the workplace, improves employee morale, elevates workplace culture, and reduces burnout. The size of the kindness action doesn’t matter. There is often an unexpected ripple effect and giving and receiving are often experienced differently. According to research from the University of California Riverside, 40% of our happiness is determined by intentional actions, not by genes (50%) or circumstances (10%). Cohen will encourage participation that will help attendees share ways to cultivate a strong culture of kindness. She will also share timely examples. This program will give your participants a variety of new kindness ideas and resources to implement immediately.
Linda Cohen is The Kindness Catalyst, a speaker, consultant and author of a new book, The Economy of Kindness: How Kindness Transforms Your Bottom Line. For more information check her website lindacohenconsulting.com.
The presentation will be 5-6 PM, EST, with optional networking from 6-6:30 PM, EST.
Co-sponsored with the Connecticut Society for Women Environmental Professionals (SWEP-CT) and the Northeast Energy and Commerce Association (NECA).
