For all of you who are interested in renewable energy projects in the State of Kansas, I’m pleased to bring you some good news this Monday morning.  The Energy Law Practice Group of Polsinelli Shughart PC (a law firm that I am proud to be a part of) is announcing an ongoing collaboration with the Kansas Energy Information Network (KEIN), a phenomenal informational resource for energy projects in Kansas.  This collaboration is the result of significant work by Alan Claus Anderson and J. Britton Gibson of Polsinelli Shughart and Scott W. White of KEIN and Scott White Consulting.

What does this mean for you?  It means that KEIN will continue to provide the excellent content that has been its staple since 2001, but will also have access to additional resources and analysis from one of the nation’s leading energy law firms.  We are all extremely excited about the potential benefits of this collaboration for everyone involved.

Additional information from the Polsinelli press release is provided below.  If you have any questions or comments, please leave a comment, email me at, or seek me out at the Kansas Energy Conference being held this Tuesday and Wednesday in Manhattan, Kansas.

Founded in 2001 by Scott White, the Kansas Energy Information Network (KEIN) has become the first stop for those who seek energy information related to Kansas and the surrounding region on the internet. The primary purpose of KEIN is to promote energy efficiency, renewable energy and a better understanding of energy issues by making reliable information available to the public.

It pleases us that Polsinelli is collaborating with KEIN and again demonstrating their commitment to the growth and strength of Kansas’ energy industries,” said Scott White, founder and executive director of KEIN.

“For years, we have followed and used the great information included on the Kansas Energy Information Network site. Scott has a great understanding of the issues and developments affecting energy projects in Kansas. We are very pleased to partner with him to build upon his solid work to continue making KEIN the preeminent source for information about Kansas energy projects,” said Britton Gibson, a shareholder in the Polsinelli Energy Practice Group.
