This well-loved annual event is a gathering of dozens of local energy volunteers from across the Upper Valley, including members of the Upper Valley Energy Committees, along with planners, energy professionals, researchers, and more.
Traditionally, the Roundtable features an evening of good food, reconnection with peers from across the region, and inspiration in the form of success stories and presentations on key issues. In 2020, due to COVID-19, we held a virtual energy showcase instead of an in-person Roundtable. A second virtual showcase was held on August 3 2021. Stay tuned for updates on the return of the Upper Valley Energy Committee Roundtable in 2022.
