State entities can play an essential role in moving advanced energy technologies from universities or R&D labs into the marketplace. These activities provide a new foundation for economic development. States such as Colorado, Massachusetts, and New York are strategically utilizing public investment to support technology commercialization, create ecosystems and clusters in clean energy, and create jobs in start-up companies. Learn about cutting edge energy technology development programs and strategies, and what it will take to position Maryland for success in this space.

Nuclear energy is valued as a zero-carbon electricity generator. Visible nuclear power is based on 1950’s technology that was optimized to power ships and submarines. But the technology in place today does not forecast the future! This session explores the potential of nuclear power in a post fossil fuel world. With power plants designed from scratch for civilian applications, fast-neutron technology has the potential to safely power civilization for thousands of years. Given the vision of sustainable nuclear power, this webinar then explores the choices confronting Maryland (and others) today.
