National Clean Energy Week

2 Mins read

The Pennsylvania Conservative Energy Forum advocates for a free market, clean energy solutions by engaging and educating policymakers and consumers to benefit all residents of the commonwealth.  Our team works almost exclusively in Pennsylvania. Our sister organization at the federal level is Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES). CRES annually organizes the National Clean Energy Week (NCEW).

National Clean Energy Week is a celebration of the policies, industries, and innovations that power our daily lives while producing no or very little greenhouse gas emissions. Despite the very real technological and political challenges, a clean energy future is within our reach, and America is ready to lead the way. Whether attending the Flagship Policy Makers Symposium (virtual in 2021) or hosting your own celebration, please join us in recognition of all that clean energy can bring energy independence, economic prosperity, and a more peaceful world.

To celebrate NCEW, PennCEF is organizing four events from August through October 2021. The first three events will be live and on Facebook Live.  The last one is virtual only.
