Two questions that every business owner is asking these days:
How will Gov. Phil Murphy’s Energy Master Plan impact your business?
And how will the Energy Master Plan be reshaped now that the offshore wind industry is struggling?
The answers to those questions and a whole lot more will be answered at 9 a.m. Tuesday during the free ROI-NJ event, “The Energy Transition: A discussion on flexible energy systems powering the future.”
- Eric DeGesero: President of Edge Consulting; executive vice president of New Jersey Fuel Merchants Association;
- Barb Blumenthal: Research director, New Jersey Conservation Foundation;
- Eric Miller: Director, New Jersey energy policy, climate and clean energy at the Natural Resources Defense Council.
The group will explain where the state goes from here — talking about the need to balance the development of “traditional” clean energy initiatives (solar, wind, electric vehicles) and newer innovations (green hydrogen, etc).
And they’ll talk about doing it in a realistic timeframe. Everyone wants to “switch” to clean energy programs overnight — what needs to happen to ensure changes are made economically and equitably?
More than anything, they’ll discuss if it’s time to reset the goals, plans, initiatives and conversations around the state’s master plan.
