Georgia Recognizes Clean Energy Week 2023

ATLANTA – In conjunction with the 7th Annual National Clean Energy Week (NCEW), Governor Brian Kemp issued a proclamation celebrating September 25-29, 2023, as Clean Energy Week in the state of Georgia.  

“Thank you, Governor Brian Kemp, for joining us in celebrating National Clean Energy Week 2023,” said Heather Reams, chair of NCEW and president of Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) Forum. “Affordable, reliable, and clean energy has become an issue on the minds of Americans across the country, from Main Street to Wall Street. In Georgia, clean energy is creating jobs, reducing emissions, and having a positive community impact. Clean Energy Week is an opportunity to celebrate the advancements made by industry leaders and advocates in Georgia and across the country.”   

Clean and abundant forms of energy are beginning to power more homes and businesses in the state of Georgia than ever before,” said Governor Brian Kemp in his proclamation. “Communities across our state depend on many forms of clean energy, including natural gas, commercial and residential solar power installations, and nuclear production. During Clean Energy Week, Georgians are encouraged to learn more about our state’s energy needs and to implement clean, low emitting energy technologies when available.”   

In the proclamation, Governor Kemp also recognizes that the state ranks in the top five states for nuclear energy production and that Georgia’s nuclear reactors provide around one-quarter of the state’s net electricity generation, with an additional reactor coming online just this past August. The governor also notes that Georgia is the national leader in biomass production, as well as a top producer of and exporter of wood pellets with a pellet production capacity of more than 1.8 million tons per year. In addition, Georgia was the sixth largest producer of hydroelectric power east of the Mississippi and fourteenth in the nation in 2021. In 2022, the state was sixth in the country for solar production with no federal mandates.   

Last year, Governor Kemp joined nearly three quarters of the nation’s governors in issuing proclamations to recognize NCEW in their respective states. Learn more about the state proclamations here. 

NCEW was founded in 2017 as a bipartisan forum to recognize the numerous advantages clean energy production provides to local communities, from economic growth and job creation to lower emissions and a healthier environment. The week contains engaging educational programming such as the Policymakers Symposium—three days of programming—convening elected officials, business leaders, advocates, policymakers, investors, and trade associations from all perspectives who are dedicated to advancing clean energy. Journalists can register for the NCEW Policymakers Symposium HERE.
