New Hampshire and the Clean Power Plan: Doing Business in the Granite State 

The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) recently released the Clean Power Plan,
designed to reduce carbon pollution from existing power plants 32 percent by 2030.  Each state
has considerable flexibility to meet this goal; in New Hampshire this incudes developing
additional renewable energy capacity and increasing efficiency.

New Hampshire is becoming wetter and warmer. The influences of changing long-term climate
patterns on roads and bridges, electricity supply, local economies and business operations are
becoming more evident.
  •  What does the Clean Power Plan it mean for New Hampshire? 
  •  How do existing state policies relate to the Clean Power Plan?
  • Should resilience to our shifting weather patterns be part of the discussion?

On Wednesday, September 23rd over buffet lunch, join members of the NH Businesses for
Social Responsibility, Environmental Business Council of New England, and the NH Clean Tech
Council for presentations and discussions with EPA Region I to learn more about the Clean
Power Plan and the economic opportunities it presents.

The discussion will provide opportunities to share information about the Clean Power Plan and
to reflect upon the New Hampshire Weathering Change report, generated from comments
concerns and ideas of more than 100 business leaders who met in Concord last fall.


  • Lisa Grogan-McCulloch, EPA Region I Energy and Climate Unit
  • Steve Duprey, Host Committee, New Hampshire Weathering Change
  • Jack Kenworthy, CEO of Eolian Renewable Energy

We look forward to seeing you on September 23rd!
