[ONLINE] - The Future of RISE

Resilient Infrastructure + Secure Energy

Join the Resilient Infrastructure + Secure Energy (RISE) Consortium™ on Tuesday, June 15th, 1:00 – 3:00 PM ET for a virtual event on addressing energy security and the climate crises.

Current Challenge: The United States and the world face profound energy security and climate crises. The federal government is the world’s largest user of energy, overseeing hundreds of thousands of buildings, making its critical mission uniquely vulnerable to extreme weather, cybersecurity attacks, and energy supply chain disruptions.

The Future: Join us on June 15th to unpack how industry and the federal government can work together to reimagine:

  • How we use, generate, transport, and store energy
  • How we build efficient, modern, resilient infrastructure
  • How we scale innovative technologies to accelerate energy security and infrastructure modernization

Who Should Attend: Federal government representatives, manufacturers, technology startups, energy services companies, utilities, academic institutions, financiers, and legal, consulting, and engineering firms.
