Enhancing Federal Clean Energy Innovation
Join the National Academies for a series of virtual workshops on Enhancing Federal Clean Energy Innovation from July 27 – August 7.

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.
The National Academies is convening a workshop series to examine barriers and highlight successful strategies for accelerating clean energy innovation across the federal government. These webcast events will 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. Sessions featuring clean energy innovation experts will be broadcast online from July 27 through August 7, with opportunities for audience Q&A participation.
The opening session will feature remarks and discussion from Paul Dabbar, Department of Energy Under Secretary for Science. The workshop series’ closing session will feature former Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz. You can download a full list of speaker biographies here.
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. Download full agenda here.
