LEADING THE CHARGE FOR A CLEAN ENERGY FUTURE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE Educating concerned residents, organizations, and community leaders. Advocating for New Hampshire's clean energy transition. DRIVING A CLEAN ENERGY FUTURE Working toward a clean energy future here in New Hampshire is a big responsibility, and far too large for one person or organization to tackle alone. So we've built a coalition of clean energy champions, made up of local communities and residents, elected officials and leaders, and organizations committed to a more sustainable future, who are on the front line building a cleaner, greener future right here in the granite state. BUILDING ENERGY POLICY CONSENSUS To make the successful transition to clean energy, we need structural solutions. The best way to do that is to work with our local elected officials, because they have the power to make New Hampshire a leader in responsibly developed clean energy policy. And as a watchdog at the state agency that regulates essential utility services, the legislature, and around the state, Clean Energy NH has been critical in creating and defending the state's foundational policies that encourage developing an educated workforce, renewable energy, and energy efficiency. BECOME PART OF NEW HAMPSHIRE'S LEADING CLEAN ENERGY COALITION "Energy is a complicated issue. Clean Energy NH is doing an amazing job trying to educate everybody - from legislators in Concord to municipalities, homeowners associations, and our cities and towns. And I think the only way that this is going to be successful is if we're all working on this as a group, as a team, and working on it together. Clean Energy NH pulls everybody together and really does look at this as a system. I'm proud to support Clean Energy NH." - Steve Walker, IMBY Energy WILL YOU HELP US MAKE THE CLEAN ENERGY TRANSITION?

RSVP CENHWebinars Play Video Play Video 59:06 Natural Gas and Biomass | CENH Public Webinar Series Global commodity pressures have pushed natural gas prices through the roof this winter, which has New Hampshire residents looking for alternatives. Biomass energy is a local source of renewable heat, which when burned in a modern, clean-burning heating appliance can reduce carbon emissions when compared to fuel oil or natural gas. But unique among the renewable heating options, local, sustainably-harvested biomass can also have numerous economic and environmental co-benefits that come with supporting the forest products industry. On this webinar, we'll check in with New Hampshire's biomass industry, and see how this latest price spike is affecting their business and thinking for the long-term. We'll also check in with the state's largest natural gas distributor and hear from them about how they see biomass figuring into their long-term plans for a decarbonized future.

What does that mean for New Hampshire? Under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), New Hampshire is anticipated to receive approximately $17 million over the next five years to support the expansion of an EV charging network in the state. An additional $2.5 billion in nationwide competitive grant funding will also be dedicated to EV charging. What does the current EV charging structure look like? Who is making the decision to how the funding will be allocated and what are the top priorities? What, if any, stipulations will be placed through this federal funding? These questions and more will be answered during a conversation with Jessica Wilcox, Transportation Program Specialist with NH Department of Environmental Services and coordinator of Granite State Clean Cities Coalition.

Play Video Play Video 56:17 YPiE Sustainable Housing: Sam's Story As more millennials and Gen Zers make investments into homeownership, they may be forgetting important, yet invisible, features - energy efficiency and clean energy technologies. A home built with these sustainability measures also makes for a more comfortable, economical, safer, and healthier home for its residents. Introducing young people to sustainable home design and renewable energy is critical to our future. In this multi-part series, young people will share their stories of creating energy efficient homes, and speak with the individuals that made it possible. Given the rising costs of purchasing a home, it's important to understand the energy costs around homeownership and what measures can be done to reduce these costs. In part two of the series, hear from Clean Energy NH's very own Executive Director, Sam Evans-Brown, as he takes us on a virtual tour of his home. Sam had the privilege of building a new home in 2015. While not an option for all potential buyers, new housing offers incredible opportunities to build affordable energy improvements into the design from the beginning. With various technologies and lower-cost renewable energy systems, he will show and tell the cost-effective sustainability renovations done to his home and the resources available to fund these endeavors.

- YPiE Spotlight: Meet Larsen Burack
Name: Larsen Burack Title: Project Manager Employer: Ohm Analytics City/Town of Residence: Hopkinton, NH Education: Business Analytics and Spanish from Elon University Why did you decide to work in the clean energy industry? Growing up in small town NH, I spent a great deal of time outside and always have felt a duty to protect the spaces I enjoy. I am a skier and former hockey player and have seen my seasons becoming limited over my short lifetime. What interested you in working at your current employer? When I was job searching, I wanted to find a role in clean energy because it is the most fundamental block of decarbonization. The skillset I developed at school was around data science so I wanted to work with data. Ohm Analytics met these criteria, and being a small company, afforded me a lot of responsibility right off the bat. Describe the work you do in more detail. I enjoy my role because it strikes a good balance between digging into the data and getting to talk to customers and potential clients. Monday I could be preparing an ad hoc report about specific solar installations in a given market, Tuesday I could be researching the status of NEVI funding, and Wednesday, I could be attending a conference. It keeps me on my toes! What aspect of your job excites you most? Why? Three things. One, I get to be very involved with building a new product. Two, I get to learn a ton about the industry because our customers are across many disciplines: solar contractors, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), distributors, financial firms, EV charging companies, and home electrification companies to name a few. Three, I get to work out of Greentown Labs in Somerville, MA, North America's largest climate tech incubator. It gives me hope to go to work every day and see another 100 companies working to drive decarbonization as well. What makes you hopeful about the clean energy transition in New Hampshire? There is a growing community of young professionals that are determined to tackle the decarbonization challenge that we face. I'm a big believer in strength in numbers. What do you believe is the most pressing challenge that lies ahead for the clean energy industry in the state? We need more young people to work on climate! What interested you most about being part of YPiE? (Young Professionals in Energy) It's really nice meeting like-minded young professionals to share professional experiences in the climate space with. When I was at school, I did not have something like this, and am motivated to help YPiE connect with NH college students to offer that support and community. What advice would you give to someone that is new to the industry or fresh out of college? Climate needs people of all backgrounds! Whether you studied environmental science, computer science, English, or anything in between, there is a role out there for you. If you are interested in finding climate work, the best thing you can do is network. Attend in person events or conferences, you never know who you will meet. An hour face-to-face with a potential employer is worth 100 hours fine-tuning your resume. Over the past year, I've teamed up with 5 students from universities across the US to build a community of over 500 students and young professionals working or pursuing climate jobs that offer this type of advice. Our mission is to empower the next generation of climate professionals. We run climate-job search courses, visit college campuses to teach students about climate tech, and help connect students directly with climate companies for jobs and internships. We'd love to increase the NH presence in our Slack Community. Find out how to get your invitation here: https://bit.ly/c2c-community What do you like to do when you aren't working? In no particular order, I like to hike, ski, golf, play guitar, and be with friends and family. A typical weekend for me is... I spend them with friends and try to get outside however possible. What's on your bucket list? Live in Latin America for a year. Tell us one thing most people don't know about you. I have perfect pitch. Fun Facts: Coffee or Tea? And how do you take it? Black Coffee. Fave NH Restaurant? Lakehouse Tavern, Hopkinton, NH Fave Musician/Band/Music genre? I listen to a lot of reggaeton - Bizarrap has some great new songs. Fav Recreational activity? Hiking
- YPiE Spotlight: Meet Alyssa Thomas
Name: Alyssa Thomas Title: Solar Installer Employer: Revision Energy City/Town of Residence: Nashua, NH Why did you decide to work in the clean energy industry? Definitely the up-and-coming career type. Love being outside and working with my hands. What interested you in working at your current employer? The vibe. I fell in love with this company (ReVision Energy) after looking through their website and watching employee testimonials about the company. Describe the work you do in more detail. A normal day on the roof, usually consists of laying out a solar array, finding rafters, drilling holes, and landing feet. We get to do some electrical work which is probably my favorite part - wire managing all the home runs and module leads. What aspect of your job excites you most? Why? The risk of being on roofs through all the seasons. What makes you hopeful about the clean energy transition in New Hampshire? We are busy busy, and I believe a lot of people are starting to see the benefit in having solar. What interested you most about being part of YPiE? (Young Professionals in Energy) Sharing experience and skills. What advice would you give to someone that is new to the industry or fresh out of college? This is not a job for the faint of heart. It's hard work and it's not always a smooth ride, but it's worth it! What do you like to do when you aren't working? Family time and outdoor hiking with my kids. What's on your bucket list? Skydiving and take a ride on a jet. Tell us one thing most people don't know about you. I’m a huge coffee geek, and have tons of coffee gadgets at home. French press, pour over, espresso machine… you name it! Fun Facts: Coffee or Tea? And how do you take it? Tea with honey, but I like both really. Fave NH Restaurant? Tuckers Fave Musician/Band/Music genre? Metal: Pantera, Lamb of God, Tash Sultana. Fav Recreational activity? Hiking, climbing, running, and traveling!
- YPiE Spotlight: Meet Annie Henry
Name: Annie Henry City/Town of Residence: Amherst, NH Education: International Business & Economics BS Why did you decide to work in the clean energy industry? I decided to work in the clean energy industry because I wanted a career that made an impact. I have a deep respect for nature and the environment—as I started to learn more about the climate crisis in college, I knew I wanted to be part of the movement to do something about it! I figured that if I had to work 40+ hours a week, I might as well dedicate that time to a cause I truly care about. What interested you in working at your current employer? My past two roles have been in Program Management and Operations at two mission-driven organizations dedicated to the clean energy transition. Ultimately it was their missions and work that initially drew me to them. As I search for my next career opportunity in the sustainability sector, these factors remain at the top of my list. Describe the work you do in more detail. Having worked in the startup and nonprofit sectors, I’ve “worn many hats” related to Program Management and Operations. Some projects I’ve worked on have been quite fun, such as researching the feasibility of EV adoption amongst NH municipalities or developing clean energy educational materials for local communities. Other projects are, on the surface, less intriguing, such as managing the business compliance process for a startup. Regardless of how exciting the project was, they’ve all given me an opportunity to learn more about the type of work I actually enjoy and the what of skills I wish to develop next. What aspect of your job excites you most? Why? I could think of many answers to this question, but one that I did not originally expect was the people. There's something to be said about working with a team of other mission-driven professionals who share a similar passion or motivation to make a difference. In my experience, this type of work tends to attract some very cool and inspiring people. What makes you hopeful about the clean energy transition in New Hampshire? The younger generations! I truly believe the motivation, passion, and care of my peers and the generations to come will (continue to) push our state (and greater society) in the right direction. What do you believe is the most pressing challenge that lies ahead for the clean energy industry in the state? I think there are a lot of nuances to this, but one that I see (and that I believe can be changed) is the political polarization around topics related to clean energy. What advice would you give to someone that is new to the industry or fresh out of college? The clean energy sector has opportunities for people of all sorts of career and educational backgrounds. If you’re like me and didn’t study sustainability (I studied business), don’t think you can’t make a career for yourself in clean energy or sustainability. Start by identifying what type of skills and job functions you’re interested in or good at, and look for clean energy companies/organizations that can use those skills. What do you like to do when you aren't working? In my free time, I find myself enjoying New Hampshire's beautiful nature, traveling, attending live music shows, dabbling in art, and of course spending time with my loved ones! What's on your bucket list? Up next is backpacking! Fun Facts: Coffee or Tea? And how do you take it? Both! Nothing makes me happier than sharing a cup of tea with someone. Fave NH Restaurant? Green Elephant (Portsmouth) or Bamee (Durham) Fave Musician/Band/Music genre? Any type of Alternative Rock Fav Recreational activity? My favorite activity has got to be snowboarding even though I grew up as a ski racer – (I joined the dark side a few years ago).
