Sponsored by the Department of Energy and the Council on Competitiveness, AEMC is dedicated to building momentum around American innovation, progress and competitiveness in energy and manufacturing. The Summit will galvanize public and private sector leaders to take concrete actions to enhance U.S. productivity and prosperity – with a particular focus on regional success stories from the Northeast.

Leaders from industry, academia, labor, national laboratories, government, and media will attend to:

  • Focus attention on the design and build out over the past four years of a clean energy innovation infrastructure and a range of public-private partnerships based around the capabilities at DOE’s national labs;
  • Deliver new public-private partnership opportunities to cultivate the conditions in this country promoting energy efficiency, the adoption of clean energy technologies, increased clean technology manufacturing investment, economic growth and job creation;
  • Highlight the Northeast’s successes in catalyzing clean energy manufacturing and innovation; and
  • Discuss the most critical, over-the-horizon energy and manufacturing challenges and opportunities affecting U.S. prosperity, sustainability, and security.

The Summit will also showcase promising energy and manufacturing innovations through keynote addresses, presentations, C-suite panels, and interactive exhibits.
