Webinar Announcement - Engaging Stakeholders to Improve Energy Efficiency Programs

May 6, 2013. 3:30-5:00 p.m. Register or join webinar at

As part of its Energy Efficiency Strategy Webinar Series, the MIT CoLab Green Economic Development Initiative invites you join our webinar on Engaging Stakeholders to Improve Commercial Building Energy Efficiency Programs. The webinar will be Monday May 6, from 3:30-5 EST.

This webinar features presentations from:

  • Larry Susskind - Ford Professor of Urban and Environmental Planning, MIT & Director of the Public Disputes Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School. Professor Susskind will introduce principles for effectively conducting multi-stakeholder collaborative management processes.
  • John Cleveland - Executive Director, Boston Green Ribbon Commission. The Green Ribbon Commission convenes representatives from Boston’s leading economic sectors to develop shared strategies for fighting climate change. They have actively provided Massachusetts' Energy Efficiency Advisory Council with guidance on improving design and delivery of commercial building energy efficiency programs.
  • Michael Little - Energy Planning Supervisor, Seattle City Light Conservation Resources Division. Seattle City Light, the 10th largest public electric utility in the USA, is developing its "Pay for Performance" program, an innovative strategy to provide financial incentives through ongoing payments for incremental energy savings, rather than on a one-time basis as is done through its traditional energy conservation programs. Mr. Little will discuss the multi-stakeholder process which informed the program's development.
