WCEE LUNCH & LEARN SERIES PRESENTS
American's Trust Factor in Energy Communications
~ featuring ~
Group Vice President, Makovsky Integrated Communications
A new independent survey of 1,000+ consumers shows that Americans considerably overestimate renewable energy’s role in the U.S.’s overall energy use – and that’s largely a matter of trust. When it comes to information sources and energy types – the survey shows that solar wins on the trust scale and the majority of consumers still look at TV news as a trusted source for information.
Join WCEE and Loretta Prencipe, Vice President in the DC office of Makovsky Communications to discuss insights from the report,How Americans Make Energy Decisions – and what that means for energy communications in the changing energy and policy landscape.
