The 5th Annual National Clean Energy Week (NCEW) will be held the week of September 20 – 24, 2021. The BCSE is proud to be a supporter of this annual event.
As America rebuilds, clean energy technologies and clean energy jobs will be critical to getting our economy back on track and ready for an emissions-free future. Join our annual week-long celebration of clean energy innovation and help solve the world’s most pressing challenges in nuclear, solar, wind, wave, hydropower, geothermal, natural gas, biomass, carbon capture, storage, and waste-to-energy technologies.
Dedication to Bipartisanship
National Clean Energy Week is dedicated to bipartisanship – we bring together business leaders, advocates, policymakers, and trade associations from all perspectives who are dedicated to advancing clean energy. Together, we harness the power of free market and government collaboration to create jobs, expand our economy, strengthen America’s national security, and preserve our environment. NCEW encompasses broad and diverse energy sources, including solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal, nuclear, natural gas, biomass, carbon capture, and waste to energy. We also recognize rapidly accelerating innovation within energy efficiency and energy storage.
Whether attending the Flagship Policy Makers Symposium (virtual in 2021) or hosting your own celebration, please join us in recognition of all that clean energy can bring: energy independence, economic prosperity, and a more peaceful world.
2021 Schedule to include:
NCEW 2021 Policy Makers Symposium will run from September 21st – September 23rd
The Symposium convenes policymakers, advocates, and the private sector to break barriers and elevate the value of clean energy across our nation in a three-day virtual conference. Connect with business leaders and clean energy advocates from all over America.
NCEW21 will be a hybrid model:

Achieving significant emissions reductions in the coming decade will be critical if the global community is to achieve its goal of keeping warming below 1.5 C and net-zero by 2050. The good news is that the clean energy and energy efficiency technologies and systems already exist to help further advance the energy transition.
This panel will focus on how existing solutions can deliver near-term emissions reductions to help countries meet more ambitious targets, and what innovative solutions are in the pipeline.

Many existing clean energy and energy efficiency solutions can deliver both mitigation and enhanced resilience against the impacts of climate change. Now is the time to re-invest strategically in technology solutions and systems that achieve both goals, as the impacts of a lack of climate action are already being felt with increasing incidences of wildfires, droughts, hurricanes and floods. Investing in communities and climate-smart infrastructure before a disaster delivers a significant return on investment. These types of solutions include on-site clean energy generation, microgrids, weatherization and other building efficiency measures and more.
This panel will make the case to invest in clean energy and energy efficiency and sustainability solutions that both enhance resilience and advance the transition towards the creation of net-zero economies.

On September 24, from 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET the Business Council for Sustainable Energy and the Clean Energy Business Network will host the eighth episode of Powering Forward. This episode will explore strategies to strengthen diversity and inclusivity in the clean energy economy.
What are some emerging federal and state level efforts to promote justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in the cleantech economy—both in terms of workforce development and project development? And how can the private sector engage?
In addition to exploring these topics broadly, we will discuss a case study with respect to the U.S. Department of Energy’s American-Made Solar Prize, a $4.6M prize competition to help innovators rapidly develop new solar technology and software solutions. Now in its fifth round, this year’s prize competition particularly seeks to recruit a diverse pool of applicants. Additionally, a subset of the prize focuses on software solutions to help promote greater justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in solar access. Learn more about the prize.
Speakers to be announced.

National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day is observed on October 8 (10.08), in recognition of the atomic weight of hydrogen – 1.008. Hydrogen is already providing fuel, feedstock, and power to wide-ranging sectors of the U.S.
The Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA) celebrates this day to raise awareness around how hydrogen energy and fuel cell technologies offer a clear pathway toward low- and no-carbon emissions economic growth, and are creating high-quality jobs and spurring advanced American manufacturing.
As countries around the world increasingly look to hydrogen as a clean energy pathway, the U.S. is uniquely well-positioned to take a leadership role. By leveraging abundant resources and a robust industrial sector, the U.S. hydrogen industry can spur American energy innovation and promote economic competitiveness.

The American Clean Power Association will host the in-person segment of CLEANPOWER 2021: Accelerating the Clean Energy Transition on December 7 – 8 in Salt Lake City, UT.
We are at a pivotal moment in time. With the need to make a positive impact on climate change, recover from the COVID pandemic and raising of ESG initiatives and social justice issues, it is a critical time to come together and make the world a better, stronger place.
20 years ago, 20% renewable goals were aggressive. Today, as we work to fully satisfy the increasing demand of clean energy from American consumers, we have our heights set much higher. The question is no longer is it possible, but how quickly can we get there. We get there by accelerating the energy transition, together.
Our industry has evolved, and it is important that our conferences evolve to meet your business needs. CLEANPOWER’s mission is to not only bring together the different technologies that make up the renewables mix; onshore wind, offshore wind, solar, storage, and transmission but also the different segments within the industries; manufacturers, construction firms, owner operators, utilities, financial firms, corporate buyers and more. These technologies and industries will all converge at CLEANPOWER 2021.
CLEANPOWER will bring in new attendees from across the spectrum of utility-scale renewable industries. Bringing these technologies together will create more value for participants by enhancing opportunities to network, broadening the scope of education and providing access to an exclusive audience. Incorporating all renewable technologies will be more convenient and cost-effective for multi-tech businesses as well as companies specializing in wind or utility solar who will benefit from an efficient business development forum that attracts decision makers from large-scale developers, corporate buyers and utilities.
This expanded and targeted business development event will help your company reach new heights.
