National Clean Energy Week Celebrated at Kansas Energy Conference

Industry leaders discuss how advanced energy access can strengthen the Kansas economy


WICHITA, KAN. – As the nation’s advanced energy leaders host events in Washington D.C. during National Clean Energy Week to raise awareness about the economic benefits of clean energy, Kansas industry experts are gathered in Wichita at the annual Kansas Energy Conference having similar discussions.  

"Americans strongly support access to renewable energy for their residential properties and commercial businesses. Innovative technologies are speeding this growth and driving costs down for consumers,” said Dorothy Barnett, executive director of the Clean Energy Business Council. "We’re pleased the recognition of the clean energy industry is happening in tangent with the Kansas Energy Conference because it’s where we’re also examining how we can integrate new innovations into our current energy production to provide reliable, more affordable electricity for Kansas businesses and consumers”

National Clean Energy Week was conceived with the goal of advancing support of our nation’s energy sector through new methods of market development, policy change, and technological innovation. It’s supported by the American Gas Association, the American Wind Energy Association, Nuclear Energy Institute, and several other national organizations that support advanced energy integration.

"Kansas invested in wind a decade ago and it’s brought forth billions of dollars in economic development,” continued Barnett. "We’re poised to continue this growth through other renewable opportunities and the Conference is the place where we can determine the best practices for that progress.”
