Women in Cleantech: How The 2020 Election Result Will Affect Cleantech
Event Description

Join the WCS Los Angeles Chapter for an engaging and dynamic discussion about the 2020 election results.

For the first time in a Presidential Election, climate change was used as a political issue to turn out the vote (source). And polls overwhelmingly indicate U.S. citizens recognize that climate change is real, it’s man made, and their politicians do something to address the crisis (source).

Implementing solutions to turn back the mounting effects of climate change as quickly as possible is crucial for society at large, and perhaps our economic recovery. Large-scale solutions require effective government policies and are heavily influenced by our elected officials. The recent 2035 Report points to the possibilities of reaching 100% renewable energy within fifteen years, if policies aligned to support such an initiative. In the aftermath of election day, one thing is clear: there’s a lot at stake over the next four years.

Join the WCS Los Angeles Chapter for an engaging and dynamic discussion about the 2020 election results, expected policies from the elected administration, and how the cleantech industry can thrive, regardless of any obstacles. Leading this conversation will be two leaders from the Market Transformation Team at Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI). The virtual happy hour will be moderated by Malini Kannan, Energy Services Manager at Sunrun and co-chair for the WCS LA Chapter.

Come learn how the political landscape will shape the cleantech industry in the next four years, how we can understand new policies and regulations, and how to stay engaged in the fight against climate change.
