Clean Carolinas: A Vision for Clean Energy Innovations to Drive Regional Economic Development in the Carolinas
November 1 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
PARTNER WORKSHOP TICKETS
NOVEMBER 1, 2023 IN RALEIGH, NC / 12:30 P.M. – 3:00 P.M.
Hosted by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte Energy Production and Infrastructure Center (EPIC)
CLEANcarolinas is a Type 1 NSF Developmental Regional Innovation Engine led by the University of North Carolina Charlotte, but encompassing partners across North and South Carolina committed to maturing the ecosystem focused on complete development of our clean energy resource basin. This resource basin includes bountiful solar, offshore wind, and marine energy that could be carried by clean hydrogen, or on a modernized, resilient electric-grid.
This workshop will introduce participants to the ecosystem and encourage new partners to join. New partners are needed for CLEANcarolinas to grow from a developmental to a nascent innovation engine, thus potentially qualifying it for a large investment by the National Science Foundation. Come hear how the NSF Regional Innovation Engines program works from Dr. Alan Cohen, a program director in the Technology/Innovation/Partnerships (TIP) directorate of the NSF. And then participate in the panel sessions addressing economic and workforce development and an innovation-driven clean economy fueled by CLEANcarolinas.
