Registration is now open for the Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative’s (CEMI) Southeast Regional Summit! The all-day conference, hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and open to all free of charge, will take place on July 9, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Renaissance Atlanta Midtown Hotel. The Southeast Regional Summit will bring together leaders from industry, academia, and government to focus on competitiveness and innovation in clean energy manufacturing throughout the southeastern United States. The Summit is the third in a series organized around the country, and will convene key stakeholders to:

  • Inform CEMI’s efforts to strengthen regional and national manufacturing competitiveness;
  • Showcase innovations in clean energy technology manufacturing and advanced manufacturing in the region;
  • Highlight federal and state resources for Southeast manufacturers and innovators to scale innovation to manufacturing; and
  • Foster networking between innovators, manufacturers, and federal and regional resources.

Dr. George P. “Bud” Peterson, President of Georgia Institute of Technology and partner in DOE’s efforts to strengthen U.S. advanced manufacturing, will make opening keynote remarks. Additional prominent leaders in clean energy manufacturing will participate in panel discussions that will focus on new innovations in clean energy technologies, enhancing the competitiveness of manufacturing in the Southeast, and existing programs and funding opportunities for companies focused on clean energy technologies and advanced manufacturing. Also, you don’t want to miss hearing about an exciting new DOE pilot for small businesses that will be announced at the summit!
