The clean energy transition in the U.S. and around the world will require major infrastructure build-outs of all kinds: power lines for renewables, offshore wind, battery storage, pipelines for CO2, hydrogen, port infrastructure, and much more. What investments are needed, how and when they will play out, what’s the role of government vs. private sector–all of this will look different in different parts of the world. In this edition of Columbia Energy Exchange, host Jason Bordoff is joined by Matthew Harris to discuss what capital allocation and clean technology infrastructure is needed to support a new era of decarbonization.
In this episode of SolarWakeup Live, my guest is Abby Hopper, the CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association. Abby has been leading SEIA for over a year and gives us an update on the mid term election day including some predictions, she is always an engaging and lively conversation and it was great to have this conversation. Abby joined me on stage in front of a sold out crowd at SolarWakeup Live in Jersey City to talk about the role that politics and policy play across the Country within the solar market and how the trade association manages this for the solar company members.
