Our CEO Erik Birkerts will be one of three panelists discussing the economic benefits of federal investment in energy R&D. He will be joined by Steve LeVine (Author of The Powerhouse, Georgetown Adjunct and Quartz Correspondent) and Kevin Kolevar, VP of Government Affairs and Public Policy for The Dow Chemical Company.
With all the excitement coming from COP21, the announcement of Mission Innovation and the Breakthrough Energy Coalition it is important to figure out how the federal government can continue this cleantech momentum. Mr. Birkerts will be focusing on how funding has to include support for commercialization programs, as well as R&D, so that startups can become successful.
