National Clean Energy Summit 8.0: Powering Progress brings the next generation of clean energy development into focus with an in-depth look at large, trend-setting investments in clean energy. A recent example of those game-changing investments is the Nevada-based lithium ion battery plant, the “Gigafactory.”
We are pleased to announce that the Summit will welcome leaders from Tesla Motors and Panasonic Eco Solutions to discuss why large-scale initiatives like the Gigafactory are needed, what these developments bring to communities and the future steps needed to capitalize on clean energy innovations. Moderated by Dan Klaich, Chancellor of the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE), the panel will feature insight from Diarmuid O’Connell, Vice President of Business Development at Tesla Motors and Jamie Evans, Managing Director at Panasonic Eco Solutions, two executives representing the companies behind the Gigafactory in Nevada and clean energy investments across the country.
The “Ripple Effect: Game Changing Clean Energy Investments” discussion will focus on how significant clean energy investments have dramatic positive impacts on the surrounding communities, including job creation, fostering entrepreneurship and building economic diversity. The panel will also provide an opportunity to discuss cooperation between the public and private sectors to prepare the workforce to match the needs of a growing clean energy economy, with the Gigafactory highlighted as one of many models of success.
Register for the National Clean Energy Summit 8.0, and be part of the discussions that are shaping history.
Clean Energy Summit is co-sponsored by US Senator Harry Reid, Center for American Progress, Clean Energy Project, MGM Resorts International, and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
