How to Make the U.S. a Leader in the Clean Energy Economy

8:30 AM - 5:00 PM EST

In his State of the Union speech, President Obama said, "I do not accept second place for the United States of America." But the truth is that when it comes to the clean energy economy, the United States isn’t even coming in second. Amidst growing concerns about clean-energy jobs going overseas, this conference will discuss what it will take for the U.S. to regain its competitiveness in the global clean energy economy.

The Apollo Alliance and Center for American Progress will bring together policymakers, academics, business and labor leaders, and other experts to discuss what policies will support the United States in becoming not only a consumer of clean-energy technologies but also a leading producer of them.
