Sustained innovation in clean industrial processes is necessary to avert the worst consequences of climate change, better serve the diverse demands of the American public and enhance U.S. economic competitiveness and national security. The federal government plays a key role in fostering innovation and encouraging cleantech entrepreneurship and investment.

The industrial sector accounts for 30 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions and includes some of the hardest sectors to decarbonize, such as cement, steel, and petrochemicals. However, federal programs aimed at reducing industrial sector emissions form a disproportionately small part of the clean energy R&D portfolio. Join us for an informal discussion of the innovation opportunities and the federal role to advance clean industry in the United States, with a focus on issues currently before the 116th Congress.
