Economic Development Key Thread in Governor’s Conference on Energy and the Environment


The 44th annual Governor's Conference on Energy and the Environment, scheduled for Oct. 13-14, will be held virtually and focus on the interplay of energy and environmental issues within economic development.

Attendees will hear about a wide variety of topics, including economic development opportunities within sustainable agriculture, Kentucky's business outlook, brownfield redevelopment potential, renewable energy procurement, energy affordability, environmental justice, and regulatory and policy updates from the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet (EEC) leadership.

The conference will include a joint presentation by Kristina Slattery, CED executive director of the Office of Business and Community Services, and CED Project Manager Andy Luttner. The pair will highlight a job-creating project that EEC and CED worked hand-in-hand to successfully attract.

Business leaders, interested citizens, non-profits, and academia are encouraged to attend.

The conference will feature two free, virtual sessions from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day. Space is limited, so register now, here.
