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 The Office of Energy Policy news releases are listed below.  You may sort them by date or topic simply by hovering over the appropriate column and using the drop-down arrow for menu choices. ​​​​​​​​​​
