Friday June 14, 2013

The Cherrytree Group was proud to host its first ever tax credit conference, "Energizing Tax Credits: Turning Brownfields into Brightfields" on June 14, 2013 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel. 

The event featured a panel of guest speakers: Warren Kirshenbaum, President, Cherrytree Group, Kerry Bowie, Director of Brownfields and Environmental Justice, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, and Richard Cote, P.E., LSP, Comprehensive Environmental, Inc. Together, they discussed the various environmental tax credits available and gave their perspectives on the current climate in the tax credit industry. 

The speakers explained the Massachusetts Brownfields and Renewable Energy programs from both a government and private sector perspective, focusing on the intersection of these programs. Specifically, they discussed a tax credit model gaining popularity, wherein Brownfields sites are outfitted with Renewable Energy infrastructure (either in addition to other improvement or as a stand-alone facility), effectively turning them, "From Brownfields into Brightfields". To learn more, the PowerPoint presentation from the event is downloadable here.
