How Can Energy Innovation Fuel Economic Recovery?
This year’s Sustainability Summit at the George Washington University touched on timely and relevant topics, from sustainable policy to community resilience. CFR Founder & CEO Gary Farha had the opportunity to talk about energy innovation with experts from the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA), the Duke Energy Foundation, and ThinkBox. The panel discussed how renewable energy, energy efficiency, storage, clean energy equity, and supportive regulations can support economic recovery.
CFR’s 10-year relationship with GW has spanned a wide range of energy supply improvements, including aggregating for clean power with a first-of-its-kind buyer consortium in 2014 to procure new renewable energy from the Capital Partners Solar Project.
Gary enjoyed the opportunity to connect with students, faculty, and peer practitioners. CFR’s entire team is passionate about engaging with the next wave of impactful doers who will further the transition to renewable energy in innovative ways.
Going beyond day-to-day client support to engage with stakeholders and peers in meaningful discussions is part of CFR’s work to broaden its impact through renewable energy.
