Location: Bellini Ballroom, Level 2, The Venetian
Join David Crane, the country’s first Under Secretary for Infrastructure with a long history driving the energy transition, in conversation with Bloomberg’s Mark Chediak about how DOE’s new office is planning to turn billions in funding opportunities into trillions in private sector investments to unlock faster decarbonization of all sectors – with renewables as the backbone.
Our recent climate laws offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform the energy economy, and there’s a lot to learn from the renewables industry as we build out critical infrastructure, crowd in private capital, and put that money to work to achieve public goods like energy independence and global climate solutions. Renewables are a key enabler of the Office of Infrastructure’s work on clean energy demonstration and deployment at scale, and the industry stands to benefit significantly as these new markets are catalyzed.
