WORCESTER — Supporters of renewable energy converged on a “Clean Energy Festival” Saturday at Holy Name Central Catholic Junior Senior High School, the Catholic school whose 242-foot wind turbine and energy storage unit yields it a science lab in its backyard.
BOSTON — Since 1990, Massachusetts’ greenhouse gas emissions have decreased in each major sector except one: transportation, the sector producing the most emissions.
To help reduce these emissions, Massachusetts has set a goal to have 300,000 electric vehicles on the road by 2025. But the high upfront costs of these vehicles make them beyond the reach of many families and communities. Government officials and advocacy groups say that including low- and middle-income families in clean technology initiatives will be critical to reaching the state’s goals.
