UofL joins Berea, Centre and UK to stimulate creation of state energy policy

April 17th, 2008

The University of Louisville has joined with Berea and Centre colleges and with the University of Kentucky to play host to a series of three conferences designed to explore and discuss ways to develop a coherent and integrated energy policy in Kentucky.

The presidents of each institution made a joint announcement of the "Energizing Kentucky" initiative April 17 at the state capitol in Frankfort.

The conferences will bring together state and national energy experts to discuss the economic, educational and environmental opportunities and challenges presented by the world’s current energy situation.

The goal of "Energizing Kentucky" is to bring together government, business and education leaders to create a far-reaching and collaborative statewide energy policy.

"Our institutions are working together to promote straight talk about energy, an issue that will continue to grow in importance to the commonwealth and the nation," said UofL President James Ramsey. "By bringing together great minds from many different vantage points, we can initiate conversations and eventually develop concrete solutions and policies that will improve our citizens’ quality of life for many years to come."

Business, political and educational leaders will be invited to each of the three conferences:
