Cape and Islands Net Zero Roundtable was designed to introduce the “net zero” goal to clean energy advocates and their allies across the region. It was also to showcase a large number of clean energy success stories on the Cape and Islands and network organizations that might work together to strategize next steps toward achieving this goal.
