KEY QUOTES FROM TÓTH-WEEDON
“We came down to three areas of support from our members. They want to have projects run together, to jointly kick off projects and to scale up existing projects.
“Another important concern is establishing support for procurement decarbonization.”
“What is important is that we will start with small projects, ones that can go relatively fast. And what we want to do is identify patterns. What are the enabling policies? Can we advocate for these policies once they have been proven?”
