In his proclamation, Governor Holcomb recognized the growing importance of clean energy, noting the clean energy sector has been a key driver of economic growth in Indiana in recent years, with over 80,000 clean energy jobs in the Hoosier state. Last year, Governor Holcomb joined more than half of the nation’s governors in issuing proclamations to recognize NCEW in their respective states.
“We thank Governor Eric Holcomb for joining us in celebrating National Clean Energy Week,” said Heather Reams, chair of NCEW and president of Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES). “Across the country, the cost of living continues to rise. It is critical that we take a hard look at the solutions clean energy technologies provide to address America’s most pressing environmental, economic, and national security needs. The sixth annual NCEW and Policy Makers Symposium connects government officials from both sides of the aisle as well as top industry leaders, researchers, investors, and advocates to discuss how we can make the prospect of a clean energy future a reality, not only in Indiana but throughout the country.”
“Across Indiana, clean and readily abundant forms of energy are powering more homes and businesses than ever before,” said Governor Holcomb in his 2022 proclamation. “We must harness the power of Indiana entrepreneurs and small businesses and ensure government collaboration to assert American energy leadership and dominance in the global marketplace and assure low-cost reliable energy here at home.”
NCEW began in 2017 as a bipartisan forum to bring together clean energy leaders and advocates across America. Through engaging programming such as the Policy Makers Symposium, the weeklong virtual event celebrates the critical role that clean energy plays in reducing greenhouse gas emissions while simultaneously bolstering the nation’s economy and energy independence.

National Clean Energy Week (NCEW), described by POLITICO as “a veritable who’s who of the Clean Energy World,” is an annual awareness week to recognize the value of clean energy including abundant job opportunities, economic growth, energy independence, consumer choice, lower energy prices, and a cleaner environment.
