A Climate Week NYC and National Clean Energy Week virtual affiliate event: More Bang for the Buck – Investing in Mitigation and Resilience Together

  • Many existing clean energy and energy efficiency solutions can deliver both mitigation and enhanced resilience against the impacts of climate change.  Now is the time to re-invest strategically in technology solutions and systems that achieve both goals, as the impacts of a lack of climate action are already being felt with increasing incidences of wildfires, droughts, hurricanes and floods. Investing in communities and climate-smart infrastructure before a disaster delivers a significant return on investment. These types of solutions include on-site clean energy generation, microgrids, weatherization and other building efficiency measures and more. This panel will make the case to invest in clean energy and energy efficiency and sustainability solutions that both enhance resilience and advance the transition towards the creation of net-zero economies.

    Speakers to be announced. Register here.
