Press Release

The state’s progress to mitigate the impact of climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions was the topic at a press conference in Hartford, CT on Wednesday (Aug. 14), hosted by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, White House Council on Environmental Quality Chair Nancy Sutley, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal and other state and local officials.

Connecticut has taken a leadership role in creating a clean-energy economy, they said, via initiatives that will:

  • “harden” energy infrastructure and modernize the state’s electric grid,
  • reduce harmful carbon emissions through investments in transportation,
  • promote renewable energy projects,
  • and support energy efficiency.

Gov. Malloy said, “We know from first-hand experience that we must make our energy grid stronger, smarter, and more secure… As we see increasingly severe weather and other impacts of climate change, it becomes even more important to harden our infrastructure as we make investments to reduce global warming emissions.”
