Please join us: The Connecticut Power and Energy Society (CPES) invite you to join us Wednesday evening, November 4, in Cromwell for a networking event and a panel discussion about the New England states’ Clean Energy RFP.
About the topic: The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is coordinating with the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources and utilities from Massachusetts and Rhode Island on a mult-state RFP to identify projects that will help advance the clean energy goals of the three states. The RFP is intended to obtain grid-scale Class I and large-scale hydropower resources and associated transmission. DEEP is operating under authority granted to the agency by the legislature in 2013 and 2015 (i.e., Public Act 13-303, An Act Concerning Connecticut’s Clean Energy Goals and Public Act 15-107, An Act Concerning Affordable and Reliable Energy).
Registration: $60 for CPES members, $70 for non-members
Great opportunity for young professionals: To our regular members: Please don’t come alone! Consider inviting a young professional to join you at this event. It’s a great opportunity to welcome new faces to the energy industry and help them build relationships with professionals from CPES.

If your summer is anything like mine, you are busy juggling work, volunteer and family activities, and hopefully taking some vacation time to replenish your personal energy supply.
While we’re juggling all of that, I’m excited to report that CPES has been putting together a great lineup of programs for the summer and to kick off our 2015‒16 season. We’ve made several enhancements based on recent feedback from our members. We will continue to hold our monthly meetings and plan several energy conferences with our partners, but we will be trying out some new meeting formats and locations to better accommodate where people work and their busy schedules. I think you’re going to like where we’re headed. Click here for more…
The Connecticut Power and Energy Society hosted a kick-off meeting Thursday, August 13 for a new Policy Committee. For the first meeting, the committee heard reports on energy policy developments from the General Assembly’s 2015 legislative session from staff attorneys in the legislature and at the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. We also heard from staff at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s new office in New England. Finally, the meeting provided an opportunity to discuss the objectives for the committee and future topics. Click here for more information.
