September 25, 2023 – LANSING, Mich. – The Conservative Energy Network (CEN) applauds the 34 governors who have signed proclamations recognizing September 25-29, 2023 as Clean Energy Week in their states. The proclamations were issued in cooperation with National Clean Energy Week (NCEW), an annual initiative, founded by the Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) to celebrate energy policies, industries, and innovations that power our lives with little or no carbon emissions. 

During this seventh annual National Clean Energy Week, CEN state teams are celebrating local examples of clean energy innovation that employs millions of Americans and powers many local economies. A highlight of the week will be the Policymakers Symposium—three days of engaging, educational programming—convening elected officials, business leaders, advocates, policymakers, investors, and trade associations from all perspectives who are dedicated to advancing clean energy. Journalists can register for the NCEW Policymakers Symposium here.

“CEN is a proud sponsor of the 2023 National Clean Energy Week,” said John Szoka, CEN CEO. “Our state teams have played a pivotal role in securing proclamations from governors across the country recognizing September 25-29, 2023 as Clean Energy Week in their states. We are encouraged to see so many conservative leaders supporting energy policies that will drive us toward an energy future that is cleaner, more affordable, reliable, and secure.”

Nationwide polling conducted by CEN has consistently demonstrated strong bipartisan support for a clean energy future. The most recent survey found that 81% of Americans support the government taking action to accelerate the development and use of clean energy in the United States with nearly two-thirds of voters preferring elected officials or candidates who support clean energy development like wind and solar.
