The New England states have an ongoing framework for reducing greenhouse gas emissions

Here’s a rundown of regional and state goals

While much attention is given nationally to the topic of climate change, the six New England states have been working for more than 15 years to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions on both a regional and state level. The states are addressing climate policy through both legislative mandates and aspirational, non-binding goals.

ISO-NE marks Earth Day 2016 with an update on energy-efficiency, solar, and wind resources in New England

How the region is on its way to meeting states’ “green power” goals

New Englanders take note: as the world marks the 46th annual Earth Day on Friday, April 22, widespread efforts are well underway here, in our six-state region, to develop cleaner sources of electric energy and reduce electricity use. ISO New England has been working closely with both the states and industry stakeholders to help quantify and integrate regional developments related to energy-efficiency (EE) programs and wind and solar resources, two renewable sources of power.

Winter 2015/2016 recap: New England power system performed well and prices remained low

Compared to winters past, the winter of 2015-2016 featured above-average temperatures and a brief cold snap in February. Many in the region have called it the “the winter that wasn’t.”

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), this winter was the warmest on record in the US. The average temperature in the lower 48 states was 36.8°F, which is 4.6°F above the 20th-century average. That beats the previous record of 36.5 degrees set in the winter of 1999-2000.
