Clean Energy Powers Nevada
With its abundant solar, geothermal, and lithium resources, Nevada is at the epicenter of the clean energy transition. Using its signature business-friendly and bipartisan approach to policy, lawmakers have supported renewable energy, built electric vehicle charging infrastructure, developed transmission, and lead the formation of a western grid.
In return, the advanced energy workforce keeps growing, with nearly 33,000 workers already employed and more on the way. Yet so much potential still remains untapped, especially if the state can grow the markets for energy storage manufacturing and recycling, distributed energy resources and energy efficiency, transmission, and vehicle fleet and building electrification.
The upside is clear – a stronger and more diversified economy, lower energy costs for residents and businesses, greater resilience to natural threats, and a modern, high-performing, clean energy system. That’s why Advanced Energy United and its members are working to ensure that Nevada continues to lead the way to an affordable, reliable, resilient, customer-centric, and clean energy future.
Our Policy Platform
- Accelerating the transition to 100% clean energy in Nevada by leading the development of a western Regional Transmission Organization, using sound long-term planning processes to develop the right infrastructure for the future, and doubling down on customer-centric energy technologies, such as energy efficiency and distributed energy resources that lower bills and increase resilience.
- Delivering American made energy to Nevada's families by developing renewable energy transmission highways and supporting the burgeoning energy storage industry all the way from lithium mining and critical component manufacturing to end-of-life recycling and reuse.
- Making electric transportation a reality in all communities by developing charging infrastructure everywhere — including rural and underserved urban communities — and supporting businesses with the right infrastructure, electric rates, and financial and technical support as they choose to electrify their fleets.
