KREC Has Concluded Program Activities
Funding that supported KREC - Kentucky Renewable Energy Consortium - ended in 2012 and the Consortium has concluded all of its program activities.
KREC was a partnership of the University of Louisville’s KPPC – Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center and J.B. Speed School of Engineering; University of Kentucky’s College of Agriculture, College of Engineering, and Center for Applied Energy Research; other Kentucky Universities; the Governor’s Office of Energy Policy and other key state agencies; and agricultural commodities groups and industry partners.
The Consortium was formed in 2005 by a federal direct appropriation to benefit the citizens of the Commonwealth by creating a unified statewide network to promote renewable energy and energy efficiency in Kentucky. From the outset of the program, KREC worked to advance energy efficiency and comprehensive research of importance to Kentucky’s agriculture, rural communities and related industries, and awarded more than $2 million to 14 researchers at the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky. Throughout its seven-year history, the consortium encouraged researchers, industry leaders, agriculture representatives and policymakers to collaborate on renewable and sustainable energy solutions.
Thanks to KREC's Members and Supporters
It has been a rewarding experience for KPPC staff who worked with the KREC program to promote renewable energy and energy efficiency in the Commonwealth. We would like to thank all of the more than 600 KREC members and 60 organizations that have supported our efforts and worked together to help move Kentucky toward a sustainable energy future.
Resources and publications developed through KREC will remain available on the KPPC website, including The Compendium and the 25x'25 Roadmap for Kentucky.
