The May 22 event was a follow up to a breakfast the law firm hosted a year ago, when Commissioner Esty had recently been appointed head of the newly formed Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.  This year, Commissioner Esty spoke about some of the challenges DEEP faced over the past year, including two major storms followed by widespread power outages in Connecticut, and the department’s primary areas of focus moving forward.  His remarks were followed by a Q&A with the audience and a Pullman & Comley panel on recent developments in energy and environmental law.
