About the Conference

Building on a very successful history, this conference is for those interested in how Vermont communities can take action to increase energy efficiency and renewable energy for municipal government, businesses, and residents, as well as support statewide initiatives.

Designed to inspire, support and grow the statewide network of town energy committees and other energy-ambitious Vermonters, this one-day conference emphasizes clean energy and climate action strategies that can be implemented locally. Workshops and roundtables will address energy efficiency, transportation, renewable energy, legislative action, coalition-building and other essential solutions needed to meet Vermont’s energy and climate goals. 

The day offers 14 timely workshops, roundtable discussions on hot topics, tremendous networking opportunities and a fantastic keynote speaker — May Boeve, director of 350.org, who is an inspiring, motivated and powerful young climate leader.


Advanced registration is required. The registration fee includes all workshop materials, general sessions, breaks, and lunch.

General registration: $30/person (includes registration and lunch featuring local foods).  Registration after November 22 is $40/person.

Student Registration: $15/person (includes registration and lunch).  Available to Vermont High School and College students in good standing. Registration must be submitted by November 22.  Limited number available.
