MDV-SEIA is proud to Co-Host The Second Annual Virginia Clean Energy Summit.  The Summit will present the clean energy technologies, policies, and business practices that are transforming Virginia’s energy landscape today.

The goal of the Summit is to highlight opportunities and encourage collaboration that speeds our use of more energy efficiency, solar, wind, storage, EVs, and other clean energy solutions. Conference attendees will include representatives from businesses, state and local governments, academia, and NGOs.

At this year’s Summit, we have the honor and privilege of hosting the Honorable Ralph S. Northam, who will deliver a keynote address. At last year’s Summit, Governor Northam announced Executive Order 43, which tasked the commonwealth’s electric systems with running on at least 30% renewable energy resources by 2030 and 100% renewable energy resources by 2050.

Since the announcement of Executive Order 43, Governor Northam signed the Virginia Clean Economy Act into law. This landmark legislation established additional goals and mechanisms needed to secure the future of renewable energy across the Commonwealth of Virginia. We look forward to hearing more from Governor Northam at this year’s Summit.
