This month we are featuring national stories on the impact of states, including VT, who remain committed to the Paris Climate Agreement , the power of boycotts and financial markets to transform the fossil fuel industry , and the growth of energy storage . Closer to home we look at battery storage in our own state , emissions reduction accountability and other policies on the legislative agenda , and discussions around Vermont’s net metering policy.
Below you will also find:
- A preview of some new transportation data that will be featured in our 2019 Annual Progress Report for Vermont, showing troubling trends in the types of new cars Vermonter are buying
- A policy agenda from the Transportation for Vermonters (T4VT) coalition, which includes many EAN network members,
- Info about an EV test drive in Burlington today and tomorrow, and
- A profile of the great work of the Vermont Energy Education Program (VEEP). We spent last Friday morning leading a session at the VEEP Youth Climate Leadership Academy and continue to be inspired and grateful for youth leadership on energy and climate.
In these final days of the decade, looking ahead to one of the most pivotal decades in human history, we are so grateful to work in collaboration with all of you to create a more just, thriving, and sustainable future for Vermonters.
