Vermont Energy & Climate Action Network—As one of the founders of VECAN we have been a long time organizer of state efforts in this area. VECAN is a network of statewide Vermont Energy Committees and other organizations helping communities across the Green Mountain State. These groups help reduce energy costs and climate impacts through conservation, increased energy efficiency and conversion to renewable energy sources. Each year we assist VECAN to organizes a daylong conference to encourage networking, recognition of good work and to help build the capacity of energy committees across Vermont. Last year, Net Zero Vermont led a workshop on the work of Net Zero Montpelier. Learn more at
