As the Boston mayoral race heads to the primary on September 14, how can the next mayor equitably and rapidly accelerate the city’s clean energy transition to mitigate the negative impacts of climate change and fossil fuel emissions for the city and region? A new whitepaper published today by the Boston Area Research Initiative (BARI) in partnership with the local academic and nonprofit communities, including ISE experts, recommends six near-term opportunities for early leadership on clean energy. It’s part of a four-paper series created by the BARI to help advise the next mayor about the challenges confronting Boston in transportation, public safety, clean energy, and housing.
This White Paper series was created by the Boston Area Research Initiative (BARI), a network of research institutions and experts, to provide our city’s next mayor with the perspective of members of our academic community. We stand ready to assist the mayor as experts, residents and stakeholders in Boston’s future. Papers were invited and reflect the views of the authors. They are not intended to reflect the views of their institutions, nor BARI members generally. Special thanks to Katharine Lusk at Boston University, Dan O’Brien at Northeastern University, and Michael Johnson at the University of Massachusetts Boston for their roles in spearheading this effort.
