At Midwest Energy News, we like to think we understand our audience. You’re smart, engaged, and curious about the region’s energy transition – the most important story of the century.

In order to help us better understand our readers, we hope you can take a couple of minutes to complete this quick 10-question survey. It’s anonymous, and the information provided will help us better communicate to our funders that we’re reaching an important stakeholder audience.

The survey will be live through Friday, October 9 and we’ll post the results sometime next week (last year’s results are here, if you’re curious).

If you have any questions about the survey, you can contact me at

As always, thanks for reading Midwest Energy News.
