News release from Mayor’s Office:
“Among the other continents represented at the CLEAN conference, I am proud to be asked as a panelist to represent North America, and specifically the City of Bridgeport in this green energy conference,” said Mayor Joe Ganim. CLEAN, a consortium of green sustainable energy organizations is hosting the conference in the European capital of culture, Aarhus, located in Denmark.
Mayor Ganim is being sponsored by CLEAN to address the conference on two panel discussions on how implementation of a thermal loop can be supportive to the community and economy of an urban center, and Bridgeport’s efforts to bring sustainable infrastructure and businesses to the city. The conference and discussions run over the holiday weekend thru Wednesday May 31st.
Bridgeport has a historical foundation as an industrial and manufacturing center that has been transforming its roots to green energy solutions like the Eco Technology Park, solar panels, and the city’s Micro Grid. These are some of the forward-thinking movements that put Bridgeport in the spotlight as a city that could utilize and benefit from the green technology of a thermal loop.
“I am always interested in exchanging ideas and talking to organizations that can make Bridgeport a thriving economically and environmentally sound city that supports job growth, a sustainable footprint for the future, and overall better quality of life for our residents,” said Ganim.
CLEAN is a world-leading cleantech cluster with an international focus that is based in Denmark. Their mission is to accelerate the green and sustainable transition while realising growth for cleantech sectors.
