Climate change looms large as we kick off U.S. Climate Action Week today, and as we work toward solutions to combat the climate crisis, clean power takes center stage. So it’s a fitting time to announce we’ll be dedicating an entire week to celebrating the ways clean energy is building a better future during the first-ever American Clean Power Week (ACPW), happening June 21-25.
ACPW is an evolution of the former American Wind Week, intended to recognize the full spectrum of clean energy technologies. We hope you’ll join us for a week-long celebration of clean energy with a special emphasis on the industry’s 50-state footprint, fitting with this year’s theme: The United States of Clean Energy. Land-based wind, offshore wind, solar, energy storage, and transmission are delivering affordable, reliable, clean energy to millions of American families and businesses, and we’ll be sharing their stories throughout ACPW. We’ll also highlight the role clean energy plays in the Biden administration’s proposed American Jobs Plan, putting American’s to work in infrastructure development as the country continues its energy transition to a majority renewables economy by the end of this decade.
These technologies are cutting pollution, providing carbon-free electricity, and spurring investment and job creation opportunities that can help lift the U.S. out of the pandemic-induced recession and meet our country’s ambitious climate goals.
Stay tuned for more information and resources that we’ll share over the coming weeks, and please reach out with any questions or suggestions. We look forward to working with you and making American Clean Power Week a new annual tradition!
