Unleashing Clean Energy Systems

October 12, 2023

America’s new energy leaders face an inflection point. 

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.

Themes will include:

  • Project Financing to Build Advanced Energy Systems: How to leverage federal sources of funds that can drive rapid deployment - and do so while including advanced digital technologies in your project
  • The State of Permitting Reform: Details on how the Federal government is taking action to accelerate the approval of important green energy projects 
  • Rapid Project Execution: Once financing and permitting is achieved, how can you accelerate the construction of a project that deploys advanced, renewable technology?
