Monthly Chapter Meeting – 4/8/24 – with Elizabeth Mahoney Commissioner of the Department of Energy Resources (DOER)

Posted on Apr 10, 2024 | Monthly Chapter Meetings

Our April meeting began with the introduction of Launa Zimmaro, the newest member of our Leadership Team and followed with updates and news on our allies’ EarthDay/EarthMonth activities and how we can participate. We also continued our discussion of Elders for Sound Democracy and their Get Out the Vote (GOTV) projects in breakout groups.

Our feature guest speaker was Elizabeth Mahony, Department of Energy Resources (DOER) Commissioner.

Elizabeth Mahony most recently worked for Attorneys General Andrea Joy Campbell and Maura Healey as an Assistant Attorney General and Senior Policy Advisor for Energy. Elizabeth served in the Energy and Telecommunications Division, focusing on utility clean energy procurements, solar program development, clean energy rate design, consumer protections, and legislative engagement. Commissioner Mahony updated us on the Department’s critical work in strategic planning and siting of energy infrastructure, and answered questions about controversial projects. We also heard about updates on DOER “Listening Sessions” being planned and the Massachusetts new statewide media campaign on the clean energy transition.
