Message from the Chairman

Alaska Senator Click Bishop

2021 - 2022 Chairman

The Center for Legislative Energy and Environmental Research (CLEER) provides support to the Energy Council’s efforts to inform its member legislators of energy and environmental issues of importance to their states, provinces, countries and world. As energy markets evolve, CLEER’s support is more critical than ever.

Through CLEER, industry, associations and academia have the opportunity to provide research and information to the attention of the Council’s legislators through its Program Advisory Board (PAB) and University Advisory Board (UAB).

Our PAB members include a broad range of energy companies and associations as well as those that refine, transmit and distribute energy. They suggest topics for our Energy Council conferences and speakers for those topics, and they provide other information and insight throughout the year.

Members of the UAB, appointed by CLEER Board Members, lead seminars at each Energy Council conference to provide an in-depth look at energy issues. In 2021-2022, those seminars will be Industrial CCUS and Hydrogen Opportunities; Carbon Management and Energy Transition Projects; and Non-variable Renewable Energy.

The perspective of our PAB and UAB members will help the Energy Council pursue its 2021-2022 themes, National and International Concerns; Innovation and Advancements; Risks and Challenges.

I look forward to sharing an informative and productive year with members of CLEER and the Energy Council.
