New efforts to spur low-carbon energy innovation
CSE and State University of New York at Stony Brook have established a collaboration to develop joint research and programs to help transition the nation to low-carbon energy technologies and close gaps that hinder alternative and renewable energy adoption.
While California leads the U.S. clean energy transformation toward decarbonization, seven Northeastern states—New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island and Maine—when combined, rival the Golden State in renewable energy deployment, energy efficiency (EE) and electric vehicle (EV) adoption.
While Vermont participates in a cap-and-invest program to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from electric power generation, the state failed to meet its legislated goal of a 25 percent reduction below 1990 baseline greenhouse gas (GHG) levels by 2012, and unfortunately, has increased its emissions since 2012 by 16 percent.

Energy efficiency is personal. This is especially true for home improvement projects that require significant investments of time, effort and money, such as adding insulation or replacing an old HVAC system.
John Livermore, a sustainability expert with more than 25 years’ experience in designing and implementing energy efficiency programs and directing citizen organizations, is the new director of CSE’s Northeast regional operations.
