NEG/ECP Regional Climate Change Initiatives


Introductory Webinar

Due to technical difficulties that prevented some from joining the March 17th webinar, a second stakeholder webinar regarding the NEG/ECP Regional Climate Change Initiative will take place on Friday, March 24, 2017 from 1-2 PM EDT

The webinar will introduce the NEG/ECP and the Regional Climate Change Initiative, provide a high level overview of the process and options under consideration, and describe the opportunities to provide input that will be considered in the development process.

A link to a recording of the webinar will be provided shortly after the event.
