Virginia Advanced Energy Economy reacted today to Gov. Ralph Northam’s Executive Order calling for the Commonwealth to use 100% clean energy to meet its electric power needs by 2050. The governor’s plan includes more immediate goals focused on the deployment of renewable energy, energy efficiency, and battery storage over the next decade.
“We applaud the governor for setting clear goals and driving Virginia’s transition to 100% clean energy,” said Harry Godfrey, Executive Director of Virginia AEE. “We are confident that, using an array of advanced energy technologies, we can readily meet the Governor’s goal while helping to save money for Virginia families and businesses and grow our economy.”
