Clean EC Returns with Advanced Energy Consumers Panel Discussion

The energy landscape is changing fast. As energy professionals race to keep up with constant technological innovation, they are also rapidly developing new methods of reaching energy customers.

Customers are central to adoption of REV — they will be the ones purchasing solar, installing cogeneration, utilizing energy management systems, and deciding whether to participate in community-scale renewables.

This panel will discuss innovations in customer engagement, with an emphasis on community-level energy aggregation and web-based engagement models, including consideration of behavioral science.

Fate of Brooklyn Bridge Park May Depend on You

How do you feel about the proposed plan to build mixed-use towers at Brooklyn Bridge Park? The Park president wants to know!

If you're not sure what the controversy is about, it is the proposed height of two primarily residential towers to be built on Pier 6, on the south side of the Park. Local residents oppose a new zoning variance that would allow each building to be taller than originally projected, blocking views and opening up a discussion of how the community can best be served.

Comments are due by August 32 at 5pm, and can be submitted by email here. You can read more about the controversy on the NY Times website here.
