Event Details

A transformation is well underway in the United States towards an energy portfolio that embraces cleaner sources and more efficient uses of energy and is boosting the energy productivity of the country and delivering economic, environmental and emissions benefits.  Join this interactive, roundtable discussion at the Global Climate Action Summit to dive deeper into the progress of clean energy in America, what the U.S. private sector is doing at home and abroad and what that means for U.S. climate action.

The findings of the 2018 Sustainable Energy in America Factbook will frame the progress of this energy transformation. A roundtable discussion will be held with leaders in the private sector – in building efficiency, corporate sustainability, internet of things, lighting, renewable energy, sustainable transportation, utilities and more – that are delivering solutions to create health energy systems and low-carbon, resilient infrastructure, and are generating jobs and economic growth in our communities.  Attendees are encouraged to share their achievements and commitments to climate action.

This event aims to showcase how the technology solutions and effective policy approaches already exist to help reduce emissions in the energy sector, and that greater ambition can be pursued when policy actions embrace a broad portfolio of clean energy solutions and include partnership and consultation with the private sector.

This event will kick off a ½ day of round-table discussions that will explore the potential for more energy efficient transportation in the U.S. (10:30 – 11:30 am) hosted by the Alliance to Save Energy and what is needed to galvanize a global movement that promotes building energy efficiency (12:00 – 2:00 pm) hosted by the Alliance to Save Energy and the World Resources Institute.

Open to the public, but space is limited. Please register or request an invitation.
