In many cases, a responsible party, LSRPs and others must address contamination and ecological concerns when working in environmentally sensitive areas such as wetlands, coastal zones, stream banks, or flood plains. This half-day workshop, which includes a networking lunch directly after the program, focuses on what you need to know when remediating sites on or near these sensitive areas and what the land use implications will be when redeveloping properties. Experts and leaders in their field, including representatives from US Fish & Wildlife Services, USEPA, US Army Corps of Engineers, NJDEP, and others will share their insights and experience with you and will provide you with an insider’s view of how these programs work together.

New Jersey is on the verge of ​catalyzing billions of dollars of private investment into energy efficiency, renewable energy and storm resiliency on private property in New Jersey through PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy). ​Since the state's PACE amending legislation, A2579/S1510, is headed to the Senate for a vote, we feel it’s timely to convene senior leaders across the public, private and nonprofit sectors to discuss its potential impact on resiliency, clean energy, and jobs in New Jersey. Whether you are a ​Business Owner, Mayor, CEO, ​CFO, Executive Director, Sustainability Officer, Architect, Engineer,​ Builder, ​Developer, ​property ​owner, ​​economic ​or community 
development ​O​officer, ​policy/planning director, Green Team Leader,​ f​financier, a​attorney or anyone involved in ​upgrading NJ communities — ​you need to know how you and your organization can benefit from ​PACE, a breakthrough in financing ​sustainable and resilient improvements to the built environment.  The ​impact​ of PACE ​will be substantial. In the U.S., buildings alone consume over 40 percent of the energy we use, and roughly 75 percent of all electricity. A 2012 study by the Rockefeller Foundation and DB Climate Change Advisors sees an investment opportunity of nearly $280 billion over the next 10 years that would translate to more than $1 trillion in energy savings, over 3 million jobs, and 600 million fewer metric tons of carbon emissions per year — and that’s just in energy efficiency. PACE financing also includes storm resiliency, water conservation and renewable energy improvements, especially important in commercial, industrial, institutional, mixed-use and multifamily properties. In a few short years since its inception, ​PACE ​programs in states like Connecticut, California​ and​ Florida have ​attracted hundreds of millions of dollars of private investment ​in ​clean energy and resiliency​. 
Our distinguished speakers include: Former Governor James Florio, State Senator Bob Smith, Assemblyman Raj Mukherji,NJ Board of Public Utilities Commissioner Upendra Chivukula, PACENow (National) Executive Director David Gabrielson,Connecticut Energy Finance Authority Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Officer Bert Hunter,New York Energy Improvement Corporation former Chairman of the Board Andrew Chintz,Simon Property Group Vice President Energy Services and Sustainable Practices Ed Sayers ,New Jersey Builders Association and Hoboken Brownstone President George Vallone,Voorhees Deputy Mayor Mario DiNatale,PACE-Equity LLC Partner and Chief Investment Officer, Board of NW Ohio Advance Energy Improvement Corporation Chairperson Kevin Moyer,MSL Group, Inc. President Michael Licamele — and other New Jersey thought leaders and out-of-state leaders who have implemented PACE program in their own state.

Two States: One Bay

A bi-state conversation about the future of the Raritan Bay
7th Annual Sustainable Raritan River Conference and Awards Ceremony
Douglass Student Center
100 George Street

New Brunswick, NJ
The theme for this year’s conference focuses on the challenges and opportunities facing the bi-state waters of the Raritan Bay. The Sustainable Raritan River Initiative is collaborating with the New York—New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program to develop a day-long series of panels and a hands-on working lunch to identify important Raritan Bay issues and the possibilities for aligning Raritan Bay water quality, habitat restoration, coastal resilience, fishery and shellfish management, and public access goals, objectives and priority actions for stakeholders in both New York and New Jersey.
These workshops and sessions will bring together more than 200 municipal and county officials, state and federal representatives, environmental commissioners, non-profit advocates, business leaders, civic-minded residents, and scientists, engineering and design professionals of the Raritan River Basin and Bay communities. Continuing education credits are being requested for: licensed landscape architects; professional engineers; professional planners; certified floodplain managers; and public works managers. At this event we will also present the 2015 Sustainable Raritan Awards – our annual awards for outstanding achievement in efforts to revitalize our region, restore and protect our resources, and promote our area as a premiere place to live, work and raise a family. The event is produced by the Sustainable Raritan River Initiative and the New York-New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program. Visit www.raritan.rutgers.edu for more information and to register!
