April SSTI Webinar:

Clean, Green and Local: Why States Are Taking the Lead in Cleantech
Though many states have implemented programs to boost the use of clean energy technologies, only a handful have fully leveraged the potential of energy policy to support their state's innovation system. The Information Technology and Innovation Foundation's (ITIF) Matthew Stepp, Mark Muro of the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings and Lewis Milford of the Clean Energy Group will explore ways that the technology-based economic development (TBED) community can better leverage cleantech policy and programs to spur greater innovation, economic development and industry expansion. We will also take a look at the role that states and regions play in the clean energy economy and how some have used clean energy funds to support research, tech commercialization and the creation of new companies.

Featuring:

  • Lewis Milford, Founder and President of Clean Energy Group
  • Mark Muro, Senior Fellow and Policy Director, Metropolitan Policy Program the Brookings Institution
  • Matthew Stepp, Clean Energy Policy Analyst, Information Technology and Innovation Foundation
