In 2020, Pew Research reported that 79% of Millennial and Gen Z Republicans want the country to prioritize developing alternative energy, compared to 55% of Boomers. Younger generations also want to see more solar and wind farms (88% and 80% respectively).
Here in Indiana, a poll conducted by the Indiana Conservative Alliance for Energy in late 2021 showed that 65% of Republican women under 40 are more likely to vote for a candidate who favors increasing renewable energy. This upcoming panel event will explore how young people can engage with clean energy and climate policies from a conservative ideology.
