The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce has had a unique partnership with the City Energy Project (CEP) over the last two years. The CEP is a national initiative to create healthier and more prosperous American cities by improving the energy efficiency of large buildings. Working in partnership with both the CEP and the City of KCMO, the KC Chamber supports innovative, practical solutions that cut energy waste, boost the local economy, reduce harmful pollution, and keep Kansas City a leading city in the Heartland.
 
As part of that effort, we’re excited to showcase several KC Chamber members’ buildings and their energy efficiency projects. We’re proud of our many members’ efforts to promote higher energy efficiency and sustainability standards and are eager to help other members with similar efforts.

At their December 2015 meeting, the Chamber’s Environment, Energy & Sustainability Initiative Committee members heard a fascinating presentation followed by a robust discussion of KCP&L’s Clean Charge Network for electric vehicles (EVs). Chuck Caisley, VP of Marketing & Public Affairs for KCP&L informed the committee about the importance and future of EVs, and why Kansas City is poised to become the “best place to own an electric car” in the U.S.
