We are pleased to introduce a center of innovation and community engagement in the City of Worcester – The National Grid Sustainability Hub.
Our new Sustainability Hub grew from a community partnership focused on developing a local green economy and delivering smart energy solutions that benefit customers. It was first conceived at the 2011 Green to Growth Summit and is made possible by a strong partnership with the City of Worcester and many local Worcester institutions and businesses. The Hub — the first if its kind in New England and widely viewed as a national model — provides a home in our community to learn more about environmental sustainability, the modernization of our electrical grid and energy saving choices that will have a long-term impact on our society.
Key Features of the Sustainability Hub:
- Interactive exhibits showcasing smart grid technologies and demonstrating how customers can help manage and reduce energy use
- Hands-on demonstration of smart meters and how they interact with home appliances
- Energy efficiency tips and education showcase of the ‘home of the future’ appliances and technology.
- Community interactive space for meetings and learning
- Full community participation with staffing from local university student ambassadors from Clark and Worcester Polytechnic Institute creating cooperative learning opportunities for both local customers and students.
The Hub is located on the Clark University campus on the corner of Hawthorne Street and Main Street at 912 Main Street, Worcester, MA 01610. The Hub is open Monday-Friday 9 AM-4 PM and by appointment on evenings and weekends.
