Network Action Teams were selected by the Network membership through a competitive process as part of our 2020 and 2021 Annual Summits.  The projects were chosen based on their potential to help Vermont rapidly, cost-effectively, and equitably reduce fossil fuels and greenhouse gas pollution.  Each project is guided by an action team comprised of a wide variety of Energy Action Network members and public partners working together to make progress on developing concepts and making progress toward their implementation.

Network Action Teams

VT Clean Transportation Equity

This Network Action Team, started in October 2021, and is working to advance a collaborative process to identify the highest impact investment opportunities, in terms of cost-effective and equitable greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, for clean transportation revenue in Vermont.

Climate Workforce

This new Network Action Team starting in October 2021 is addressing the challenge that to achieve Vermont’s required greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, we need to train thousands of Vermonters with the skills to electrify our transportation sector, install clean energy solutions, weatherize homes, build net zero commercial buildings and sustainably manage our working lands, forests and waterways.

Weatherization at Scale

By 2030, weatherize every home of low-to-moderate income Vermonters who make less than 120% of average median income – including renters.  This Network Action Team started in October of 2020, and is very active, with a number of different work-groups.  

Clean Heat Standard

Create a Clean Heat performance Standard (CHS) applied on a competitively neutral basis to all major suppliers of heating fuels in Vermont.  This Network Action Team started in October of 2020 and has been drafting a whitepaper detailing how a Clean heat Standard can work for the state of Vermont. 

Future of Rural Transit

Prepare Vermont to have the most efficient, equitable, and cost-effective rural transportation system in the US by combining public, Medicaid, and school transportation into a single electrified public transportation system.  This Network Action Team started in October of 2020 and is now studying feasibility in two communities.

Replace Your Ride

Help low-income Vermonters switch to clean transportation options affordably, while also accelerating the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector.  This Network Action Team started in October of 2020 and helped create a pilot program for the state of Vermont that will start in the spring of 2022.  

Small grants were also awarded to support Fare-Free Transit and Renew Vermont: Building a Movement for a Just and Equitable Future as a result of their pitches at the 2020 EAN Summit.

Although EAN Network Members may support specific policy actions, EAN staff support the work of the action teams through our role as a neutral convener and refrain from advocating for specific policies.
