Energy and the environment – two parts of our daily lives that seem at first glance to be counter to each other. Yet, in Kentucky, we firmly believe these two areas can and should be part of the same discussion. That is why Gov. Steve Beshear brought the two together under the Energy and Environment Cabinet (EEC).
In Kentucky's EEC, we take seriously our role of overseers of how we carefully and thoughtfully address the energy needs of our citizens. Whether from our historic coal operations and seeking ways in which to mine and deliver that mineral more safely and cleanly, or developing stringent regulations that make certain Kentucky’s natural beauty is not harmed, EEC employees continue to work diligently to bring vital services to all Kentuckians.
There are three departments within the EEC. The Department for Environmental Protection, Department for Natural Resources and Department for Energy Development and Independence.
