November 2018 - Present
Researcher Bryndis Woods, Clinic Director and Senior Economist Liz Stanton, PhD, and Senior Researcher Ricardo Lopez, PhD, are preparing a policy brief on Massachusetts' natural gas utilities. The brief will analyze how Massachusetts' natural gas utilities currently receive compensation, the inconsistencies between utilities' incentives and the Commonwealth's legally mandated emission reductions, and the performance-based incentives that can align gas utilities' business interests with their responsibility to reduce emissions.
