Nevada Senator Harry Reid, UNLV President David Ashley and the Center for American Progress Action Fund announced this week their partnership in hosting the National Clean Energy Conference, to be held at UNLV on Tuesday, August 19. This summit will bring together major industry leaders, scientists, policy experts, citizens and the media to participate in a dialog about our nation’s clean energy future.
“I am hopeful that this event will result in some consensus ideas and principles that participants can carry to the parties’ political conventions and on into the next Administration. As the Majority Leader, clean energy -- and Nevada’s central role in this revolution -- will be a top legislative priority of mine for the next Congress,” said Senator Reid. Senator Reid believes Nevada can be the world leader in clean renewable energy, drawing upon its vast solar, wind and geothermal resources to provide clean, stable power while creating thousands of jobs for our state’s economy.
