The northeastern states that Key Capture Energy is developing projects in continue to strengthen their commitment to a clean energy economy. This week, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont signed an executive order to strengthen Connecticut’s efforts on climate change. Joined by the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Commissioner Katie Dykes, Governor Lamont stressed the state needs to focus on impacts like sea level rise and flooding, extreme heat events, and changes to ecosystems.
As Connecticut continues to converge its energy needs (power, heating, and transportation) to much lower emitting electrification, energy storage will play a crucial part to balance the needs of the grid in a way that is cheaper, cleaner and more reliable. Energy storage helps balance intermittent solar and wind energy (both onshore and offshore), provides needed grid capacity, and adds layers of resiliency.
Key Capture Energy looks forward to working in Connecticut and to help move the state to a 100% clean energy electric grid.
