Washington, D.C. Today, Independent Women’s Forum celebrates the start of National Clean Energy Week (September 20-24) by recognizing the importance of clean energy in powering America’s future. Republicans and Democrats may disagree on their approaches to relying on clean energy, but a growing percentage of Americans across party lines have recognized the role clean energy can play in our energy future.

Charlotte Whelan, policy analyst at Independent Women’s Forum, released the following statement:

“Clean energy encompasses much more than renewable energy. If we truly want to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change we need to use all the sources of clean energy available to us. This means embracing solutions like nuclear power and carbon capture and storage while supporting and encouraging further American innovation in our energy sector.”



Independent Women’s Forum is dedicated to developing and advancing policies that aren’t just well intended, but actually enhance people’s freedom, choices, and opportunities.
