Climate, Clean Energy and Radiation Protection, Division of

Permanent URI for this collection

Formerly known as the Office of Climate and Energy, the Division of Climate, Clean Energy and Radiation Protection strives to meet two distinct objectives: evaluate and promote clean and resilient energy systems, and sustainable environmental practices and programs; and, protect New Jersey’s citizens from unnecessary exposure from the beneficial use of radiation in medical and industrial applications.

In 2007, New Jersey enacted the Global Warming Response Act. This law requires stabilization of statewide greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, followed by a further reduction to 80 percent below 2006 levels by 2050. It is essential that New Jersey meet these limits in order to avoid the most damaging impacts of climate change.
