City of Concord NH
Stakeholder Committee Meeting on Renewable Energy Plan June 11
More than 30 stakeholders from organizations, businesses and communities across the city will gather for a third and final meeting on June 11 to provide feedback on Concord’s 100% Renewable Energy Strategic Plan.
The 3rd Stakeholder Committee meeting will feature a short introduction and presentation by members of the Concord Energy and Environment Advisory Committee (CEEC) on the progress made thus far and the changes made to the Strategic Plan since the last stakeholder meeting in March. This will be followed by a large group discussion where stakeholders can give direct feedback.
This stakeholder committee, hosted and organized by the CEEC in conjunction with City staff, is part of the process laid out in the 100% renewable energy resolution passed by the city council last July. That resolution established a community-wide goal of 100% renewable energy for electricity by 2030, and for all sectors (including transportation and heating) by 2050. It also directed the CEEC to draft a strategic plan to guide efforts towards that goal, in concert with a stakeholder committee composed of organizations, businesses and communities from across the city.
Numerous stakeholders have agreed to take part including electric utilities, renewable energy businesses, environmental and conservation organizations, community action groups, auto dealers, students and school administrators, real estate developers, public health and housing experts, and religious congregations. The stakeholder committee has convened twice previously, in January and in March. June 11 will mark the third and final meeting.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 11, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at 37 Green Street and is open to the public. The public may also contribute to the process by submitting comments through the following link: https://forms.gle/oiY5zUZqdFbHdm94A.
