On Wednesday, April 24th, FountainHead RI will host its inaugural major in-person event of 2024, marking the commencement of the Rhode Island Climate Stocktake. The gathering will take place at the exquisite Waterfire Arts Center in Providence, Rhode Island, aiming to provide a comprehensive view of the energy transition from both global and local standpoints. Key focal points encompass entrepreneurship, infrastructure investing, insights post-COP28 from Dubai, and perspectives from Rhode Island, firmly anchored against the RI Act on Climate. This lens includes viewpoints from legislators, corporations, venture capitalists, Departments of Energy, and Environmental Management, among others.. Despite its small size, Rhode Island has made significant strides in the clean energy transition, punching well above its weight.
