We will be honoring the renewable energy industry at a critical time for our members throughout the world. We’ll celebrate success for some in building strong business models and products to face risk and uncertainty. For others, we’ll identify areas in need of progress and action. This evening will gather Energy, Finance & Policy professionals around the following question: “Does the United States need an Energy Policy?”
Nancy Pfund will launch the evening with a thought provoking presentation of her recent study: “Red, White and Green: The True Colors of America’s Clean Tech Jobs”, in which she compares the government support for clean tech jobs in both so-called Red (Republican) and Blue (Democratic) states. She will also discuss another recent report, "What Would Jefferson Do? The Historical Role of Federal Subsidies in Shaping America's Energy Future."
