The current plan involves three rounds of stakeholder events (May, July and October) to engage stakeholders at different points in the process. For the first round, the primary/central location will be in Hartford, with six satellite locations around the state. Participants at the satellite locations will view the presentation(s) via video link and then engage in facilitated dialogue at the local level. (We anticipate having additional sites in July and October.)
The May 5th gatherings 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).
The CT Roundtable on Climate and Jobs is helping to coordinate logistics for these gatherings.
