Building the Global Clean Energy Economy

Thursday, December 3rd,  7:45 – 18:45


In 2014, global investment in clean energy topped $310 billion. The low-carbon transformation of the energy sector is underway, driven by falling technology costs, business innovations and key policy frameworks.


Join a panel of U.S. clean energy companies for a discussion on how energy efficiency, natural gas and renewable energy are creating the low-carbon economy in America, and how U.S. companies are investing in countries around the world – to help tackle development challenges caused by climate change and urbanization. This business panel will discuss the enabling environments and investment frameworks that are opening markets both in the U.S. and abroad for cleaner sources of electricity generation and more energy-efficient systems.
