Nebraska Recognizes Clean Energy Week 2023

LINCOLN, Neb. – In conjunction with the 7th Annual National Clean Energy Week (NCEW), Governor Jim Pillen issued a proclamation celebrating September 25-29, 2023, as Clean Energy Week in the state of Nebraska. 

“Thank you, Governor Jim Pillen, 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 Nebraska, 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 Nebraska and across the country.”  

“Nebraska believes in clean, affordable, and readily abundant forms of energy for all,” said Governor Jim Pillen in his proclamation. “Wind is responsible for a significant portion of the state’s renewable electricity generation, with more than 1,000 wind turbines and more than 3,300 megawatts of installed wind capacity as of early 2022, with hydropower contributing to the remaining renewable energy.” 

In the proclamation, Governor Pillen recognizes that the clean energy sector now employs over 22,000 Nebraskans and that the state obtained 25 percent of its electricity generation from wind power and 18 percent from nuclear power. In addition, Nebraska is the second largest manufacturer of biofuels in the country, second only to Iowa.

Last year, the state of Nebraska 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.
