Pending rules from the federal Environmental Protection Agency which will place limits on greenhouse gas emissions will have economic, policy and technological impacts on Kentucky.
Those issues will be given a great deal of discussion as experts from across Kentucky and the nation discuss these impacts and strategies during the 37th Governor’s Conference on Energy and the Environment.
Other sessions will include discussions of options or potential pathways for Kentucky to comply with the federal climate agenda while ensuring our citizens and industry have affordable, reliable access to electricity.
The conference is Sept. 17-18 at the Lexington Convention Center.
