Eversource, based in New England, is the first US utility to announce it will be CO2 neutral by 2030. Roger Kranenburg is responsible for developing Eversource's long-term clean energy strategy and polices including grid modernization, along with implementing its transportation electrification and battery storage initiatives. He will discuss how Eversource defines CO2 neutrality both quantitatively and qualitatively, how the utility fulfills its corporate and state obligations, as well as sharing some of its challenges. He will also touch on Eversource’s role in decarbonizing the greater Northeast region vis-a-vis offshore wind investments and the firm’s role in energy justice vis-a-vis its natural gas LDC.

Registration will close on the prior business day, October 14, when registrants will also receive a Zoom link at the close of business. Opportunity to use the Q&A function of Zoom during the webinar. Access to the event recording after logging into www.ncac-usaee.org as a member.
