SATURDAY — MARCH 6, 2021 — ONLINE
fifth annual green fairFifth Annual Green Fair (Renewable Energy Sustainable Living Fair)

We’re pleased that we don’t have to cancel our Fair due to Covid-19 and happy to continue to offer people in the Capital District area a one-stop shopping/information space for renewable energy and sustainable living products, services and ideas. 

We will host the event on our own website. We will have a virtual exhibition hall that will connect visitors to your website and an overview of your organization. You can also send us your Zoom account link and we will put it in your “booth,” which will allow visitors to the Fair to speak with you directly. We ask that anyone who exhibits at the Fair designate a person who will be available for interacting with participants (via phone or Zoom) on the day of the Fair. This information will be kept on our website indefinitely (minus the Zoom link). 

In addition we will have presentations, workshops and an opportunity for people to “mingle/network.”

Once you have registered we will send you the specs for sending us your logo. We will also need a link to a Zoom account if you want to make that available. 

This year we are charging $200 for for-profit organizations and $35 for not-for-profit organizations. We will have “early bird” pricing of $175 for for-profit organizations and $30 for not-for-profit organizations who sign up and make payment prior to February 1, 2021. (You can finalize your virtual fair plans and details by February 19, 2021.) This fee includes exhibit space at the Fair, listing on our website indefinitely and a list of visitors to the Fair who have agreed to share their contact information with you. 

We are happy to provide an event with no social distancing, no face masks, no crowd noise, no exhibitor siting issues, no weather or parking concerns; just an enjoyable, relaxing, healthy atmosphere! (Sorry, we can’t provide hot drinks and snacks this time.)

Free public event for visitors; fees apply to exhibitors. Sponsored by Community Advocates for a Sustainable Environment (CASE),

SATURDAY — MARCH 6, 2021 — KEENE, NH
stop line 3
— STOP LINE 3!

XR NH will gather in support of indigenous peoples defending their sacred lands from this toxic Enbridge project. We will also be highlighting Bank of America’s financing of Line 3.

Join XR NH to demand Bank of America divest from LINE 3!

Line 3 is poised to be a linchpin in tar sands infrastructure. It is designed to prop up a dying industry for decades. Kill it and we can kill the whole toxic tar sands industry. The failure of this project will send shockwaves through the entire fossil fuel industry.

EEA logo
— Interim Clean Energy and Climate Report for 2030 Webinar #1
The Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA) sets out a series of requirements for how the Commonwealth is to achieve emissions reductions by mid-century. The GWSA requires EEA to set emissions limits every 10 years, together with implementation plans to achieve them.  In setting those limits, the Secretary of EEA is to both ensure that the limit maximizes the Commonwealth’s ability to meet its 2050 limit and consider the feasibility, cost-effectiveness, and enforceability of GHG reductions measures, along with their co-benefits, for achieving said limit. The 2030 CECP builds upon the 2010 publication of the Clean Energy and Climate Plan for 2020 (2020 CECP), as well as the 2015 Update to the 2020 CECP (Updated 2020 CECP). 

The Interim 2030 CECP was released on December 30, 2020. Interim report available in: English;   Español;   中文;   Português;   Kreyòl ayisyen;   Tiếng Việt

EEA is hosting two public webinars on the Interim 2030 CECP.  Details and registration information is below.   The two webinars will follow the same format and stakeholders are invited to attend either. EEA will first present an overview of the Interim 2030 CECP, after which attendees will be invited to provide oral public comment (up to 2 minutes). These comments will be recorded and considered with the other public comments on the Interim 2030 CECP.  Webinar details:

  • Interim 2030 CECP Webinar #1, Tuesday, March 9, 2021, 3-4:30pm.
  • Interim 2030 CECP Webinar #2, Monday, March 15, 2021, 6:30-8pm.
