Regional Clean Energy Innovation: Policy & Economic Opportunities in the US

Back to All Events
hi res

On May 1, 2020, we hosted a virtual briefing of the latest report, “Regional Clean Energy Innovation”, and discussion on the policy implications, how innovation compares across the 50 states, and what this all means for our clean energy future.

Participants took a deep dive into regional clean energy innovation potential across the US. In addition, the report's authors highlighted the report’s comparative analysis of Maryland and Colorado and offered lessons learned to help states justly transition local economies toward a clean energy future.

Speakers Included: 

  • Chris Votoupal, Legislative Affairs Director, Colorado Cleantech Industries Association
  • Ellen Williams, Distinguished University Professor, University of Maryland Department of Physics
  • Kavita Surana, Assistant Research Professor, University of Maryland Center for Global Sustainability
  • Joseph Hezir, Managing Principal, Energy Futures Initiative

The report was sponsored by the Energy Futures Initiative and the University of Maryland Global Sustainability Initiative.
