SAVE THE DATE: On Saturday April 10 Beyond Extreme Energy is pleased to host the FERC into FREC Summit: The Grid and the Green New Deal.
This half day strategy summit is THE place to be to talk about reforms that will move the U.S. energy system and economy from fossil fuels, fracked gas, and nukes to clean, job-creating, renewable energy. At the heart of the Green New Deal is the need for federal agencies and leadership that do more than put bandaids on the corrupt institutions that enabled the climate crisis.
Replacing FERC with the Federal Renewable Energy Commission is essential to building a 100% clean power economy and US leadership on the climate crisis.Important reforms are already underway in Congress, the Presidential Administration, and at FERC itself. Join us and frontline activists and organizations from around the country on April 10 for a participatory summit to strategize, plan and learn how this year can be a historic turning point in the climate struggle– starting by changing FERC into FREC. Exciting guest speakers and workshop leaders from the halls of Congress to the frontlines of fossil fuel extraction, distribution, and exports will be there. Stay tuned for more announcements soon and SAVE THE DATE: April 10!
In the lead up to the Summit we will be reaching out to frontline groups and FREC Statement Signees for input on discussion topics and specific visions for the Federal Renewable Energy Commission.
