Good Resources on Renewable Energy in Maine
January 12th, 2010
This is the first video post for The Green Light Distrikt and am really excited about it, along with a site re-design that will be completed by the time I return to Boston from Toronto. Last week, I went to a local Boston area Green Drinks event. I met some great people, reconnected with others that I haven’t seen for a while and saw a great discussion by Chuck Levin, Director of New Generation Energy that gives a great snapshot of the energy efficiency and green energy industry. Chuck discusses how the government is affecting the industry, what’s working and having trouble and lastly what New Generation Energy is working on. The posts will be split into two separate posts and I plan to be collecting a lot more great video content of events around the Boston area.
Also, please vote for your Top 3 favorite Boston clean tech companies. The top 10 vote receivers from the list of the top 26 of Boston clean tech companies will be profiled each month on The Green Light Distrikt in 2010 starting in February.
Please leave your comments on the video, I’m excited to hear what you think.
In part 1 Chuck discusses:
- The history of New Generation Energy
- Their mission to help small business and non-profits become more energy efficient
- The parts of the clean energy industry that are working well:
- 1)Role of big banks, finance, utilities scale generation.
- 2)Role of Tax Equity type investments and who uses them
- 3)Where Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) fit in
- What is not working well
- 1) The place for lower values projects, organizations with no tax appetite
- 2) Problem with small organizations; cheap energy, no capital or long term planning
- 3) Why for profit enterprises have not focused on this group, how NGE addresses this opportunity
- How Renewable Energy Notes work
- The ways that NGE helps organizations as directly as possible
- Why adoption rates of using state incentives programs for efficiency is so low
