Join NECEC Navigate’s third webinar of the 2020 Series on August 26. It will address our Energy future from a critical lens. As we work towards a clean energy future, it’s up to us to actively ensure that BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) and other under-represented groups are equitably represented in the endeavor and share in its rewards.
Register Here: https://bit.ly/2Pbmdv6
You will learn:
What's being done and more importantly what needs to be done to address climate issues while ensuring BIPOC participation
Policy and regulatory shifts to enforce inclusion in clean energy
Strategies to reach minority communities
Our Webinar Series is brought to you with invaluable support from NYSERDA and CleanCapital.

The State of Maine has set an ambitious goal of an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Approximately 84% of Maine’s economy is generated by the private sector. To achieve this ambitious goal, we’re going to need the participation and leadership of Maine’s business community.
The Maine Climate Table is hosting a series of on-line events this fall to explore the opportunities for climate mitigation and adaptation in Maine’s business sector. How might we finance climate action in Maine? Will we have the workforce to implement the changes needed? How are our natural resource sectors—forestry, fishing, and agriculture—preparing for climate change? What are some Maine businesses doing now to slow climate change?
These are just some of the questions that our on-line panelists will be addressing. Adam Lee of Lee Auto Malls, well-known Maine business leader and climate advocate, will kick off our series with a keynote on Thursday, September 24th.

Join E2Tech and the University of Maine for an overview of CHP technology, renewable fuel options, and support of small scale CHP Projects.
Combined heat and power (CHP) is defined as the use of on-site power generation to provide both electricity and heat at the same time. This process is more fuel efficient than a conventional power plant because otherwise-wasted heat can be used in a productive manner such as space heating, or cooling.
The University of Maine has been designated as one of ten US Department of Energy (DOE) CHP centers dedicated to promotion, technical support, and deployment of cost-effective and highly efficient CHP technologies throughout the nation (UMaine News).
Get updated on the latest developments in Combined Heat & Power and learn the potential of the technology, with our expert panel.

The Maine Climate Council is charged with developing a plan to meet state greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets that are now in law, including a gross 45% greenhouse gas emissions reduction below 1990 levels by 2030 and at least 80% by 2050.
Starting with an introduction & overview of energy use by sector, our panel of experts will explore challenges for meeting these targets. What combination of strategies could work, and what business opportunities should emerge? How have other states proceeded? What is the baseline and how will progress be tracked? As the Maine Climate Council begins work on a blueprint for action, this panel will look at the scope of their undertaking, focusing in this initial forum on the transportation & heating sectors. It is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day - join us!

Achieving the emissions reductions goals of the Maine Climate Council hinges on dramatically reducing reliance on fossil fuels -- not just for home heating, but in all sectors of the Maine economy. It relies on a large-scale shift from fossil fuels to an expanded electricity grid powered mainly by new renewables. Panelists, who are experts in the field with both supporting and opposing viewpoints, will lay out what is needed in terms of investment and structure, including solar, wind, energy storage development, as well as the accompanying policy measures required, to achieve the enacted goals.
Join E2Tech for an in-depth, detailed exploration of possible pathways to a fossil fuel free economy and whether the approach is reasonable, achievable and economical. Ample time for audience Q&A will be included.

Do not miss this comprehensive review of the challenges facing Maine cities and towns in waste disposal & recycling, including an up-to-the-minute update on Coastal Resources of Maine's Fiberight facility.
Can't make it in person? All paid registrants get full access to the recording and slides, plus a copy of the Q&A panel.
Solid Waste Disposal and Recycling in Maine
Maine’s solid waste disposal system is a patchwork quilt built from the ground-up. This system consists of public and private municipal and regional landfills, waste-to-energy incinerators, solid waste processing and recycling facilities, organics management operations, and your local transfer station. All of these entities must respond to market swings worldwide, nationally, and within the system as well as to State and federal laws and regulations.
But why has solid waste been in the news lately? Problems with crashing recycling markets are just one part of the story. The recent closure of Coastal Resources of Maine’s Fiberight anaerobic digester in Hampden has diverted municipal solid waste from 115 municipalities to the Waste Management Crossroads landfill in Norridgewock and to the PERC waste-to-energy facility in Orrington. The municipal solid waste system is still trying to reach equilibrium absorbing waste that formerly had been handled at the now-closed MERC waste-to-energy facility in Biddeford. And the State is encouraging and funding waste diversion projects to increase recycling and composting infrastructure.
Attend “E2Tech Talks Trash,” and learn what happens after you set that bag at the curb. Speakers will describe the various elements of the solid waste system and challenges in Maine and will discuss the policy directions and technologies that affect them now and in the future. Ample time for Q&A will be provided.
