On December 21, 2022, the Baker-Polito Administration released the Clean Energy and Climate Plan for 2050 (2050 CECP), the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ comprehensive and aggressive plan to achieve Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions in 2050. The 2050 CECP highlights a broad suite of specific goals, strategies, policies, and actions to reduce statewide gross GHG emissions by at least 85% below the 1990 baseline level, and conserve and enhance carbon sequestration on natural and working lands to help achieve Net Zero in 2050. The 2050 CECP charts out the way Massachusetts will achieve the emissions limit and sublimits in 2050 through building a future in which the heat in homes, power in vehicles, and the electric grid can all operate with minimum reliance on fossil fuels. While this Plan sets out policies specific to each of the sectors of the economy, the 2050 CECP recognizes that clean energy technologies across sectors face some common challenges and solutions. These challenges will be addressed through cross sector strategies such as expanding workforce development, supporting clean energy innovation, and ensuring a thriving and just economic transition that will benefit everyone.
