The energy transition is already creating new wealth with solar and wind power. The transition to a low-carbon economy will present an even bigger investment opportunity. Technologies do not invent themselves and this transition requires innovation on a significant scale

This workshop will consider how government, philanthropy, and private capital can fund and de-risk an innovation pipeline. The panel will bring thoughtful insights focused on nurturing innovation, managing risk in a “lean startup era.” and the policies and funding needed to support the new carbon economy. Join this important conversation and consider remaining engaged as a leadership community advancing new partnerships and collaborations to create opportunities for investment in the new carbon economy.

The panel will be live-streamed from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. EST.

Dinner provided.

Hosted by Arizona State University’s Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability in partnership with the National Council on Science and the Environment, the Security and Sustainability Forum and Carbon180.
