There have been many notable developments concerning climate and energy over the past few years in Wisconsin since the Wisconsin Academy released its 2014 Climate Forward report. This media and community briefing comes on the publication of an update to our 2014 report that acknowledges clean energy progress in Wisconsin, flags missed opportunities where our state is falling behind neighboring states, and highlights opportunities that have emerged in the interim.

- Tyler Huebner, Executive Director, RENEW Wisconsin
- John Imes, Executive Director, Wisconsin Environmental Initiative
