"Net zero means that you may have some emissions, but you're going to offset them in another way...When you talk about net zero buildings, meaning...that it's generating as much energy as it's using. But when you talk about a utility commitment to be net zero by 2030, 2035, 2040, they may mean net zero in....the energy they produce to sell to customers. They may mean net zero across the organization." Janet Gail Besser on Electric Ladies Podcast Companies and governments announce their “net zero” goals, saying they will get to net zero by 2030 or 2035, for example, but what does that really mean and how will they do it? If you work in an organization that made this commitment, you also need to figure out how you’ll guide your organization that way.
Listen to Janet Gail Besser of Smart Electric Power Alliance explain “net zero” and their framework any organization can use to get there in this fascinating interview with Electric Ladies host Joan Michelson. (Electric Ladies was formerly known as Green Connections Radio.)

“There are a lot of new opportunities. And so one piece of advice I give is to be open to anything. If you have been at a utility for 15 years, look around at some of …the new technology providers, look at some of the startups, look at some of the opportunities in clean energy finance, if that matches your skillset. Look beyond where you are now at what's happening and be open to new opportunities. My other big ad advice is network, join the organizations that are supporting women and energy in the environment.“ Janet Gail Besser on Electric Ladies podcast
