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.
If you missed any of the Policy Makers Symposium, free video recordings will be available soon on-demand on the virtual portal from all the live keynote addresses and panel discussions. Stay tuned for more information about NCEW 2023—which will take place September 25-29—at https://nationalcleanenergyweek.org, including sponsorship opportunities, remote and in-person events, and registration for next year’s Policy Makers Symposium.
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.
