Online Workshops - Enhancing Federal Clean Energy Innovation

The remaining workshops in the National Academies series will take place August 3 - 7, 2020. These workshops are titled: Advanced Manufacturing and the Climate Crisis: Changes and Opportunities, Challenges and Opportunities for Cross-Agency and Cross-Sector Collaborations and Thinking Globally.

This series examines barriers and highlight successful strategies for accelerating clean energy innovation across the federal government. These workshops feature timely, action-oriented assessments of how to strengthen demand for new clean energy technologies and facilitate cross-agency and cross-sector collaboration to solve today’s energy challenges. Panels with experts and thought-leaders in the clean energy innovation space will be broadcast online, including opportunities for audience Q&A participation. For the convenience of our online participants, we have spread out the workshop panels over multiple days in order to keep session lengths under two hours.

A widespread and rapid transition to low-carbon energy by 2050 is essential to keep pace with ambitious policy goals and avoid the worst consequences of climate change. Historically, energy transitions have taken 50-100 years from initial breakthrough to widespread adoption, which means this transition must be implemented on a much shorter time scale.
