As climate change continues to impact the Greater Boston region, policy proposals and regulations designed to electrify infrastructure are continuing to come online. Over the coming decades, individual communities and the state will enact regulations that require both buildings and vehicles to operate without the use of fossil fuels. Owners are also starting to see the benefits of electrification, with long-term cost savings being supported by increased demands from end users for these improvements. While the improvements needed at the individual building or vehicle level are well understood, the broader question remains: where will all this electricity come from and how it will be distributed?
This session will explore the regional needs for electricity and discuss how Greater Boston will be able to obtain clean sources of energy to support growth and the transition away from fossil fuels. It will also explore the electrical infrastructure required to accommodate demand from the distributors to the end-users. We’ll hear from researchers, operators and providers about the different perspectives on regional energy needs and sources and examine how end users can help shape Boston’s green future.
