Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center virtually on Thursday, July 20, from 3:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET to hear from Tim Holt, member of the executive board and labor director for Siemens Energy, on the role of the private sector in enabling the energy transition necessary and global net zero goals. Landon Derentz, senior director and Richard Morningstar Chair for Global Energy Security at the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center, will moderate the discussion.

As we continue to navigate a complex energy transition strategy and global sustainability agenda, the role of private industry has proven to be integral to the development and implementation of low-carbon and renewable energy technologies. Moving forward, the expansion of transmission lines and manufacturing capacity alongside the deployment of clean energy technologies is a foundational aspect of the energy transition. This discussion will highlight the key facets of the energy transition, supply chain mechanisms, and the role of government in accelerating the energy transition and decarbonization efforts.

Please join this conversation via the web application Zoom, which is accessible through your web browser, the Zoom desktop or mobile app, and by phone.
