As the chorus of voices calling for transition away from the fossil fuel economy increases every day, how can policymakers around the globe answer this call?

Rod Richardson joined several other noted experts from the East End of Long Island for SoFo's 5th Annual Climate Change Day forum. Click for event flyer. The East End of Long Island is particularly vulnerable to sea level rise, water contamination and storm surge. The local fisherman just experienced a near total die-off from this year's scallop harvest, where increasing ocean temperatures and excessive fertilizer used on lawns and crops are the initial suspects. Rod spoke of the need to bring about new, business-friendly policies that provide the energy resources residents need while also being good stewards of the environment.

Charrette: Energy Policy Innovation
Held at Holland & Knight, LLP
October 1, 2017
Washington, DC

More than 30 experts in energy policy, academia, business and government came together for an all-day conference to brainstorm solutions to energy policy and innovation. While folks the world over are calling for bold action on climate and a transformation of the energy sector, often public policy is a mash-up of confusing and time-consuming policies, that often prevents the best solutions from reaching elected officials, municipalities and business executives. At this charrette, these policy experts worked to come up with a set of solutions that have the potential to create the pathway for new policy and greater innovation.

Stay tuned for the report, which shall be posted on the Resources page.
