Inside Ciel's First Clean Energy Conference
New Jersey’s Energy Master Plan;
Incubating A Clean Energy Economy
The first draft of New Jersey’s Energy Master Plan sets forth a strategic vision for the production, distribution, consumption, and conservation of the state’s energy — but what does it mean for the companies participating in the state’s clean energy economy?
Kearny based Ciel Power LLC and Kearny Point partnered with the New Jersey Sustainable Business Council and Hugo Neu Corporation to jump-start the conversation Tuesday with “New Jersey’s Energy Master Plan; An Interactive Discussion on Incubating the Clean Energy Economy in New Jersey,” a jam-packed morning of panels and break-out sessions held at Kearny Point featuring some of the industry’s most influential stakeholders.
“We wanted to do something that is different, and which speaks to the increasing pace of clean energy competition and innovation across the country, particularly in states like New York and Massachusetts.” said Scott Fischer, Managing Member of Ciel Power LLC. “The level of attendance at this event speaks to the desire for a cleaner and greener economy here in New Jersey; one that is more vibrant and inclusive than the one we know today.”
One of the conference highlighs was hearing directly from the author of New Jersey’s the Energy Master Plan, Hannah Thonet, Bureau Chief for Policy, Office of Clean Energy at the New Jersey’s Board of Public Utilities. Thonet explained how, “the 2019 EMP outlines in broad strokes how climate, energy, and economy are all interrelated and mutually supportive.”
The group brought together representatives from across a variety of clean energy sectors including William O’Hearn, Communications and Outreach Manager, Business Network for Offshore Wind, Lyle Rawlings, President & CEO of Advanced Solar Products, Jason Steinberg, Founder & COO, Scanifly, and Pam Frank, CEO, ChargeEVC.
