Office of the Governor
State of Montana
I am pleased to recognize September 24-28, 2018 as “National Clean Energy Week” in the state of Montana.
My administration is fully committed to developing Montana’s renewable energy resources. I believe Montanans should determine our energy future through a balanced and responsible plan that provides good-paying jobs, supports rural communities, and strengthens our schools while safeguarding our quality of life. With the help and input of Montanans, my administration will continue to build on previous accomplishments and drive economic growth by improving upon our traditional base of energy while sparking a new generation of clean technology business.
National Clean Energy Week was founded to advance our nation’s clean energy sector by advocating for growth of the clean energy economy through policy changes and technological innovation. Montana is working with utility companies, wind and solar energy developers, energy efficiency advocates, small businesses, industry workers, and communities all across the state to protect our future while continuing to grow our economy. I commend the efforts of all Montanans working to achieve a cleaner energy future.
I encourage all Montanans to recognize National Clean Energy Week.
The list of national organizations who comprise NCEW’s Steering Committee include: Advanced Energy Economy (AEE), the Alliance to Save Energy (ASE), the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE), the American Gas Association (AGA), the American Petroleum Institute (API), the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), the Biomass Power Association (BPA), the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE), the Center for Liquefied Natural Gas (CLNG), Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) Forum, Clean Energy Business Network (CEBN), the Energy Storage Association (ESA), the National Hydropower Association (NHA), the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI), and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).
NCEW brings together industry associations, businesses, non-profits, and advocates in the clean energy space for activities in Washington, D.C. and across America to showcase how they are helping to make the industry stronger, and influence the discussion around common sense clean energy solutions that directly address America’s need for abundant, reliable forms of energy.
