Jun 21st, 2014 | By | Category: Energy

The Institute for Sustainable Energy (ISE) at Eastern Connecticut State University received the prestigious Power of Change Award for “State Difference Maker Leadership” at the Connecticut State Capitol on June 17.

The 2014 Power of Change Awards celebrate the energy efficiency achievements of more than 20 Connecticut state agencies and municipalities. The winners received awards for their innovative initiatives and approaches to reducing energy spending and protecting the environment — efforts which benefit all Connecticut residents.

Rob Klee, commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, addressed the gathering of more than 100 awardees, legislators and other guests with a message that reinforced the importance of energy efficiency, both as a cost-saving measure, and as a key strategy in reducing carbon emissions. “The cheapest and cleanest energy is the energy you don’t use,” he noted.
