NVCOG is pleased to partner with the Governor’s Council on Climate Change (GC3) in coordinating a series of stakeholder engagement events this year. The GC3 was established by executive order in April 2015 and charged with developing a strategy/plan to meet the state’s mandated goal of an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions below 2001 levels by the year 2050.
The first of three stakeholder engagement events will be held Thursday, May 5th, 5:30pm-7:30pm, with refreshments available at 5:00pm. The primary/central location will be in Hartford, with a local satellite location at Naugatuck Valley Community College in the Traurig Learning Resource Center and Library, room L501. Participants at the satellite locations will view a presentation via video link and then engage in facilitated dialogue at the local level.
The May 5th event will provide stakeholders the opportunity to learn about and provide feedback on the technologies and measures that will be modeled in the Long range Energy Alternatives Planning system (LEAP). This widely-used software tool for energy policy analysis and climate change mitigation assessment will help us understand the GHG reduction potential of various measures and technologies (and combinations thereof).
Online registration and location details are available HERE.
