State Capitol, Madison, WI

Thompson Center Director Ryan Owens moderated a legislative panel at a state capital briefing. Progress has been made in Wisconsin to realize economic opportunities presented by energy technologies, but more remains to be done. The discussion focused on:

  • The economic benefits that could be made by an expansion of Wisconsin’s innovation in the energy markets;
  • How current state laws and policies influence innovative energy technologies; and
  • Highlighting potential policies that could improve the success rate and accelerate expansion of these opportunities.

This event was supported by Citizens’ Climate Education, The Wisconsin Conservative Energy Forum, and the Midwest Renewable Energy Association.
