Wisconsin Conservative Energy Forum Launched to Promote Renewable Energy

The Wisconsin Conservative Energy Forum is a newly formed organization focused on building support for renewable energy sources and technology among Republicans. The organization is part of the National Conservative Energy Network that has expanded into 19 states over the past four years. The Wisconsin Forum will be chaired by former Governor Tommy Thompson. Scott Coenen of Madison’s Capitol Group, a lobbying firm, will serve as the group’s first executive director with board members such as Debbie Crave of Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese that has two manure digesters and Matt Neumann, of Nuemann Companies, with home development and solar energy businesses. They recognize that renewable energy sources are reliable and cost-competitive with significant job creation momentum. The Forum’s message is that renewable energy is an economic development opportunity for the state; and therefore, should no longer be a partisan issue.
