Association Webinars: Northeast Decarbonization and Regional Electricity Sector Integration


Deeper regional integration in the electricity sector across the North American Northeast can bring substantial benefits in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through the deployment of renewable energy. In this region, as elsewhere in the world, GHG emission reduction targets imply the dual challenge of electrifying many energy needs and decarbonizing electricity production. This webinar presents the findings of our report arguing that better coordination in planning and operating the Northeast electricity sector could greatly facilitate decarbonization.
