Chairman, Energy Institute of Alabama
We are fortunate in Alabama to have energy readily available to power our homes and businesses. In fact, most of us take for granted that electricity and other sources of energy will always be there to light our way, bring us comfort at home, and provide the power needed to run our businesses and industries. It hasn’t always been so. Still among us are family members who remember when they first got electricity at their home or school. The reliability, abundance, and affordability of our state’s sources of energy are the result of foresight and leadership of energy industry leaders, policymakers, and elected officials. The Energy Institute of Alabama is committed to advocating for strong energy policy that is critical to the economic growth of our state and ensuring reliable, affordable, clean energy is a priority for consumers and businesses.
As we move into the future, access to clean, affordable energy will continue to be an issue of vital importance in the halls of government and around the kitchen tables across our nation. We will endeavor to use our resources to research and report on the best, most efficient energy strategies for a 21st Century economy.
The Energy Institute of Alabama will be the best source of energy industry information that affects households across the state, from conventional energy production to alternative fuels to solar power and beyond. Our mission is to promote reliable, affordable and clean energy to help grow our economy, create high-paying jobs, and build public support for Alabama’s energy industry.
