There’s now ample funding to transform our energy systems. And even more importantly: a recent permitting reform agreed upon in Washington stands to catalyze major projects.
Permitting had plagued the rapid deployment of renewable and storage technologies in major projects across the country - the federal government’s recent action changes that.
It means the pressure is on. Public and private leaders need to work together to deploy clean technology and drive the clean energy transition - fast. To shape the execution of advanced energy systems in a manner that benefits every American.
A special recorded session of CityAge, held in partnership with Siemens and United for Infrastructure during Climate Week, will look at how to seize this opportunity.
Join us online on October 12.
