Abstract: Our energy systems are under unprecedented pressure today. We are juggling concerns about energy security, the environment, and economic implications, all while energy demand continues to grow. Exciting new technology solutions are brewing in labs and companies, and some of these new technologies are making progress in the market. What will it take to keep our energy R&D engine running? What's happening with the capital needed to deploy these new energy solutions at scale? How can we align our national policies so that they unlock private capital? This presentation will discuss key issues in technology, finance, and policy across the energy landscape.
