Today’s episode

It’s crunch time for climate action in Vermont! In this week’s Climate Dispatch, VNRC’s Johanna Miller and VCV’s Lauren Hierl are joined by Energy Action Network Director and Vermont Climate Council member, Jared Duval.

In this Dispatch, get a quick update on all that’s happening with the Vermont Climate Council, a highlight of some of the big ideas on the table—including Weatherization at Scale, a Clean Heat Standard, the Transportation & Climate Initiative, and more.

Call to action

Find all the essential information and RSVP for those events here and read through the key, high-level elements VNRC sees as critical to this initial plan here.

Finally, for deeper grounding, check out the Energy Action Network’s annual progress report that highlights the potential pathways for Vermont to meet the 2025 and 2030 Global Warming Solutions Act requirements in a cost-effective, equitable, job-creating manner.
