The U.S. Secretary of Energy was in Kentucky Wednesday to meet with energy leaders in the state. As WUKY's Karyn Czar reports, she also fielded questions about rising energy prices fueled by war in Ukraine.

Secretary Jennifer Granholm's first stop was at Schneider Electric in Lexington. The company has become a global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, something Granholm believes we need more of in the U.S. and globally.

Granholm was asked about rising gas and oil prices and the impact of the release of 60-million barrels of petroleum reserves from the U.S. and 30 of our allies.

Secretary Grnholm was joined by Governor Andy Beshear, business and energy leaders to discuss ways Kentucky can play a role in growing a global clean energy economy.
