Date: April 30, 2019

Time: 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM Eastern

Overview

Join us for a panel discussion on the intersection of cleantech and defense. The US Department of Defense relies heavily on electricity and non-renewable fuel sources to carry out energy intensive military operations. The reality of climate change threatens US National Security and it is mission critical that DoD strengthen their climate resilience. Needless to say, the opportunities for cleantech technologies to solve DoD problems are numerous. The challenge is connecting the solutions to the problem and creating mutually beneficial relationships between DoD and cleantech entrepreneurs. Join us for a frank discussion on how we can bridge the gap between cleantech innovation and national security needs.

WHEN: Thursday, April 4, 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM
