Gov. Baker Joins Group of 17 Governors to Promote Clean Energy

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

 

Governor Charlie Baker joined a bipartisan group of 17 governors to announce the Governor's Accord for a New Energy Future, a joint commitment to take action to promote clean energy, clean transportation choices and a modern electrical grid. 

“The Governors’ Accord for a New Energy Future highlights the tremendous opportunities to create a shared clean, affordable and resilient energy future. Massachusetts will continue to lead the way on clean energy, energy efficiency and the adoption of innovative technologies such as energy storage. These efforts, and our legislative proposal to bring additional hydroelectricity and other renewable resources into the region, will ensure we meet our ambitious greenhouse gas emission reduction targets while also creating a stronger economy for the Commonwealth," said Baker. 

The accord provides participating governors, combining to represent 127 million Americans, a platform throughout which their states will collaborate, learn from one another, and leverage partnerships in energy planning and policy making. 

“This Accord will allow us to collaborate with like-minded governors to create innovative clean energy policy and ensure a stronger national energy future. Joining the Accord reaffirms our commitment to diversifying the Commonwealth’s energy portfolio, supporting new energy technologies, and meeting our goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20% below 1990 levels by 2020," said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. 

Each governor committed to continue to diversify energy generation and expand clean energy sources, encourage clean transportation options, plan for an energy transition and collaborate to make transformational policy changes. 

Senior advisors to participating governors will convene shorty to discuss initial steps to pursue their shared priorities and commitments contained in the Accord.
