Steve D'Agostino interviews Brad McNamara, who works in Operations at the New England Energy Council and is earning a dual MBA and Master's degree in Environmental Science at Clark University. They talk about the short- and long-term future of clean energy.
The mission of the Council is to accelerate New England’s clean-energy economy to global leadership by building an active community of stakeholders and a world-class cluster of clean-energy companies.
The Council represents nearly 400 member and affiliate-member organizations, including clean-energy companies, venture investors, major financial institutions, universities, industry associations, utilities, labor, and large commercial end-users.
The Council's ranks now include clean-energy CEOs, representatives from most of the region's top 10 law firms, and partners from most of the top New England venture-capital firms, which have a total of more than $8 billion under management.
Working with its stakeholders, the Council develops and executes a wide array of programs in six key focus areas: innovation; growth; education and workforce development; adoption; policy and advocacy; and research.
