The Americans for a Clean Energy Grid (ACEG), in cooperation with the Climate and Energy Project, recently hosted the Heartland Transmission Conference in Hutchinson, Kansas on August 15-17, 2011. Attended by over 150 people, the conference provided a forum for discussing transmission’s important role in enabling the integration of remote renewable energy resources to promote regional economic development in the Heartland.
Leading regional and national experts, including FERC Commissioner Marc Spitzer and Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, discussed energy issues impacting Kansas and the nation.
During his keynote, Governor Brownback expressed a desire for Kansas to be known as “the Renewable State,” but explained, “To get there, we have to balance the three E’s: Energy, Economy and the Environment.”
