ILSR’s John Farrell led a seminar on energy democracy at the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association’s 2016 annual conference in Boston, MA. The conference was held from March 8th through the 10th and focused on advancing the adoption of sustainable energy practices by bringing together over 3,500 renewable energy professionals.

John’s presentation was titled “Does Electric Grid 2.0 Mean Energy Democracy?” and he gave a 25 minute presentation with the rest of the time used for a question and answer period. Earlier in the conference, John gave an opening plenary presentation.
