Attendees of the New England Clean Energy Transmission Summit will gather in Boston today to discuss the economic, energy and environmental challenges – and opportunities – facing New England.

Keynote speeches by Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA), FERC Commissioner Cheryl LaFleur and environmental organizer Bill McKibben set the tone for the day, while other speakers will add to the discussion of key issues from recent Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) rulings to economic development and clean energy solutions that can create new jobs in New England and bring down high electricity costs.

The event is webcast at: and participants can follow the conversation on Twitter by using the hashtag #NESummit.

The event is being hosted by Americans for a Clean Energy Grid (ACEG) the Conservation Law Foundation (CLF), and the New England Clean Energy Council.
