Breakfast & Check-in
Welcome Remarks and Opening Polls

We will kick off the day by mapping out the audience in the room and understanding what are the key policy updates, challenges and Northeastern state markets C&I developers, regulators, financiers and vendors are most interested in.

This exercise will give us a sense of which specific discussion points need to be expanded and what questions are already generally understood. Besides, it will be a great opportunity to break the ice and get to know the group a little bit better. #showall
