    How Innovation in Transportation is Disrupting Real Estate Development, Planning and Design

    Transportation specialists on a panel discussion on “How Innovation in Transportation Is Disrupting Real Estate Development, Planning and Design” were generally in favor of more BRT, or bus rapid transit, and were not so enthused over the idea of a gondola to get people from South Station to the eastern edge of the Seaport District.​On the panel at a well-attended CREW Boston March lunch at the Hyatt Regency Boston Hotel, moderated by CREWBoston President Lisa Serafin, Principal at the real estate firm Redgate, the three panelists agreed that the economic health of the region depends on continue investment in transportation and that some commitments need to be made in the near future.

    Power Purchase Agreements – An Aggregation Model

    Members heard from Pam Messenger with Friends of Post Office Square about the alliance formed in 2016 between Friends of Post Office Square, MIT and Boston Medical Center (BMC)  to buy electricity from a large new solar power installation, adding carbon-free energy to the grid and demonstrating a partnership model for other organizations in climate-change mitigation efforts.  Their 25-year Power Purchase Agreement enabled the construction of Summit Farms, a roughly 650-acre, 60-megawatt solar farm in North Carolina, the largest renewable-energy project ever built in the U.S. through an alliance of diverse buyers.  Summit Farms has been operating for a year.
