The Commonwealth of Kentucky established the Kentucky Climate Action Plan Council (KCAPC) process to identify opportunities for Kentucky to respond to the challenge of global climate change while becoming more energy efficient, more energy independent, create jobs and spur economic growth. Recognizing the interconnectedness of energy, environment and economic development, in June of 2009 Governor Steven L. Beshear created the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet (EEC). Three departments within the EEC — Department for Environmental Protection, Department for Natural Resources and Department for Energy Development and Independence — are participating in the Kentucky Climate Action planning process.
