FRANKFORT, Ky. – In conjunction with the 7th Annual National Clean Energy Week (NCEW), Governor Andy Beshear issued a proclamation celebrating September 25-29, 2023, as Clean Energy Week in the commonwealth of Kentucky.
“Thank you, Governor Andy Beshear, 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 Kentucky, 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 Kentucky and across the country.”
“The production and consumption of energy affects our everyday activities, natural resources, our resilience, and the future growth of the economy,” said Governor Andy Beshear in his proclamation. “Kentucky celebrates clean energy innovation in fossil, renewable, and nuclear technologies that reduce the environmental impact and improve the quality of life for all Kentuckians.”
In the proclamation, Governor Beshear recognizes that security, stewardship, and resiliency are core foundations that must be considered when managing the commonwealth’s energy resources. The governor also notes that the commonwealth will continue to invest and support efforts to expand reliable and sustainable energy. Learn more about the 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.
