About the series
U.S. States on Energy and Climate, part of the CSIS Clean Resilient States Initiative, is a four-day event series showcasing U.S. state-level action on energy and climate. In these leadership conversations, officials from Massachusetts, Illinois, Oregon, and New Mexico will discuss their strategies to balance three distinct—but intersecting—imperatives: greenhouse gas emissions reduction, economic opportunity creation, and resilient energy infrastructure.
This event and the Clean Resilient States Initiative are made possible by the Sloan Foundation.
