Commercialization Is Simple, Not Easy: A Fireside Chat with Jigar Shah and Robyn Beavers with introductory remarks by Dr. Kathleen Hogan 

Join us Thursday at 12:30 in room 407!

With $62 billion from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and billions more from the Inflation Reduction Act, Congress has given DOE a mandate to radically accelerate the commercialization and deployment of technologies critical to the energy transition.

DOE has undergone a historic reorganization, creating the Office of the Under Secretary for Infrastructure, to ensure we meet these goals.

Jigar and Robyn will dive into what it will take from entrepreneurs, investors, and policymakers to slash the time to commercialization and deploy critical technologies at scale.
