EnergyBar: Go Energize 2023 Kickoff

June 8 @ 5:30 pm 8:00 pm ET

Join us virtually or at Greentown Boston on Thursday, June 8 to celebrate the kickoff of Go Energize 2023!

Join us to celebrate the kickoff of Go Energize 2023, a Greentown Go startup-corporate partnerships accelerator program focused on decarbonizing our energy system, in partnership with Vineyard Wind and MassCEC.

At this EnergyBar, attendees will hear lightning pitches from finalists hoping to accelerate environmental and digital solutions for responsible development in offshore wind industry—like the Vineyard Wind Project, the nation’s first utility-scale offshore wind farm.

A total of 40 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity is set to come online in the United States in the next decade. Cutting-edge technology is key for offshore wind energy projects to be developed in an environmentally responsible manner while also delivering electricity for consumers. Go Energize 2023 aims to reduce barriers to entry through industry education and relationship-building across relevant networks.
