A Security Threat Profile of Global Climate Change @ Room 2168 (Gold Room), Rayburn House Office Building
Feb 24 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

The Center for Climate and Security and the Environmental and Energy Study Institute invite you to a briefing on projected climate change impacts on U.S. security and national interests in the coming decades. How will climate impacts affect geopolitics, infrastructure, and security environments in a world with a 2-degree Celsius rise in average global temperature? How about a 4-degree rise?

The briefing will showcase the Center for Climate and Security’s Security Threat Profile of Global Climate Change report, a product of the National Security, Military, and Intelligence Panel on Climate Change. The report is a comprehensive look at the wide-ranging security impacts of climate change across all six geographic U.S. Combatant Commands, under two scenarios of future warming (a 1-2°C rise in temperatures, and a 2-4°C rise). Authored by a diverse group of U.S. national security and intelligence experts, this report offers both regional and international threat assessments for climate change, and recommendations for the way forward in addressing the looming global challenge.

SEIA Finance & Tax Seminar @ Convene
Feb 27 @ 8:00 am – 7:00 pm

The SEIA Finance & Tax Seminar is a prestigious annual event that connects 250+ senior-level solar and finance executives with legal and tax experts for an in depth look at financing trends, contract structures, deal terms, current market conditions and policy forecasts that impact structured transactions within the solar and storage industries. 

Hear how your business can best navigate policy and financial risk, including the phasedown of the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC). SEIA continues to advocate in Washington for tax policy that supports the solar and storage industries and lowers carbon emissions. The ITC phasedown schedule, as well as other tax provisions that impact clean energy deployment, will be a key feature of this event.

To reach SEIA’s goal of solar comprising 20% of total U.S. electricity generation by 2030, the industry must develop innovative financial mechanisms and dramatically expand access to capital. Don’t miss this opportunity to network with top solar and finance executives as they dive into the biggest investment challenges and opportunities for fueling the next decade of clean energy growth.

The State of Solar Jobs (Webinar)
Mar 4 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

As the solar industry continues to evolve, the growth and stability of the solar workforce continues to be of utmost importance. The Solar Foundation’s National Solar Jobs Census and the EnergySage Solar Installer Survey provide insight and analysis of solar jobs from two separate angles: the in-depth data on solar employment and the workforce at the national and state levels, and the boots-on-the-ground perspective on the state of the industry.
