Ron Phillips' Photo

The UN Climate Summit last week focused global attention on the issue of climate change. Here in the Northeast, CEI is one of many businesses and organizations that recognize the economic necessity of climate change mitigation and adaptation. We were a sponsor, last week, of the North American Passive House Network Conference in Portland, a convening of architects, builders, and companies from all over the world focused on energy efficient building practices.

Take a look at our video, featuring CEI's Energy and Environment Officer Steve Cole, and Ryan Hamilton, Managing Partner of Interphase Energy, for more on renewable energy and impact investing for the future.    

And, if you live in Maine, on November 4, vote YES on ballot question 3 to re-finance programs that support jobs-creating small businesses, a key public sector measure for re-energizing rural economies.

Steve Cole, CEI's Energy and Environment Officer, and John Egan, Director of Housing Development, are committed to identifying promising renewable energy solutions that can offset Maine's widespread use of fuel oil as primary source for heating during long, cold winters.  

"As technologies become more widely adopted, the price falls and when it does, the economic and environmental benefits of renewable energy can be shared with lower income people, who now bear the greatest burden of high energy costs," said Steve Cole.
