About the Vermont Energy & Climate Summit

If we are to meet Vermont’s important and interrelated goals, we have a lot of work to do over the next 8-10 years. As of 2016, the share of Vermont’s total energy need met with renewable sources was approximately 16%, substantially lower than its 2025 goal of 25%. As of 2013, Vermont’s GHG emissions had increased 4% from 1990 levels and decreased 11% from 2005 levels, again lower than the Paris Agreement commitment of a 26-28% decrease by 2025 and lower than Vermont’s statutory goal of 50% reductions below 1990 levels. In summary, we will need creative and collective action to further bend the curve toward these important energy and climate goals.

The Vermont Energy & Climate Summit was a full-day gathering of Vermont leaders. These leaders discussed where is Vermont in meeting its climate and energy goals? What efforts have been made thus far— and what more needs to be done?
