Panel Discussion Overview:
D.C. has aggressive clean energy and emission goals that focus on the installation of renewable and distributed energy resources in the District itself. There are several lucrative incentives driving clean energy adoption in the city including the RPS and Solar for All programs. Despite these incentives, there are hurdles today to clean energy expansion and the hurdles tomorrow might be even more daunting. This panel will feature leaders and practitioners in the District who work on these issues every day. They will discuss the last mile issues with clean energy in the District and moving towards our aggressive goals.
