Next Virginia Gov. Can Drive Economy, Make Energy More Secure, Clean, Affordable

Posted by Advanced Energy Economy on Jun 23, 2017

Richmond, Virginia, June 23, 2017 – Today, Advanced Energy Economy (AEE) announced it has delivered a policy memo to the Virginia gubernatorial campaigns of Republican nominee Ed Gillespie and Democratic nominee Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam outlining how advanced energy can transform the Virginia economy. The memo, “Advanced Energy Roadmap for Virginia: How the Next Governor Can Make Virginia’s Energy System More Secure, Clean, and Affordable—and Drive Economic Development,” outlines key executive actions and legislative priorities that will allow the next Governor to pursue an economic development agenda that takes full advantage of the potential of advanced energy. The identical memo was delivered yesterday to each campaign. “Advanced energy is already a major economic driver in Virginia, employing over 80,000 Virginians and driving billions of dollars in investment throughout the Commonwealth,” said J.R. Tolbert, Vice President of State Policy for AEE. “The next Governor should look to the advanced energy industry as a key partner in driving economic development from the coalfields of Southwest to the Shenandoah Valley and the Tidewater region. Advanced energy can deliver economic gains, greater grid reliability, and savings in energy costs. We look forward to continuing work with the Gillespie and Northam campaigns throughout the general election.”
