Regional Energy Organizations Lean into the Future with Long-term Goals

By Hope O’Shaughnessy
A number of regional New England organizations formed to address urgent environmental issues are expanding their mission to include access to renewable energy and sustainable communities. The Vermont Environmental Consortium (VEC) in Rutland, VT led by Miles E. Waite, PhD is another exemplar of energy and
environmental awareness in northern New England. One of the VEC’s signature efforts is to increase awareness of green careers. This fall they are sponsoring several career panels, which are free to members and non-members. The panels will be presented by VEC board members. Read full article here. 

VEC Holds First Mixer Meetup

The Vec held their 1st Mixer at the Green Mountain Power Energy Innovation Center in Rutland on September 28 that was well attended. We heard from Weston & Sampson, Efficiency Vermont, EcoGlobal LLC and others. Mixer sponsors included Stone Env., Community Investments, Weston & Sampson,  EcoGlobal, and VT Rural Water Association. We hope to have another mixer in Southern Vermont for members and others in the environmental community in December around the holidays, date TBA. The Mixers are free to members and non-members, have snacks/appetizers and drinks, and allow for networking, education, and speakers on various environmental topics in Vermont.
