Two weeks ago, I attended a roundtable on how cities can write Net Zero plans, which govern how they can move their building sectors to can use net zero energy. There’s a follow-up roundtable to that meeting next week, which is targeted toward city officials, so that the US Green Building Council (USGBC) can engage them for input. The USGBC is working on a report with policy recommendations. I’ve been emailing our City’s planning department to encourage them to attend and yesterday a senior planner confirmed to me yesterday that he registered to attend. Today, I contacted the event’s planners to let them know Somerville’s interest in the event. And I also contacted my alderman to encourage him to attend as well. It would be great if Somerville had a strong showing.
Today, I also did some more work for the Climate Reality Boston, getting more of our chapter roster data in order.
