Innovation Breakfast Series: Changing the Frame on Green Energy
The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia hosts The Innovation Breakfast Series to bring a fresh perspective on the challenges and opportunities facing our region and the role that innovation and philanthropy can play in addressing them.
We are partnering with Northern Virginia Regional Commission for the May Innovation Series event titled, “Changing the Frame on Green Energy.” Cities and regions around the country are taking local action to promote and grow the scope of green energy. More jobs, stronger energy security, healthier families, vibrant entrepreneurship, and higher standards of living can all result from a growing green energy sector. But green energy levels in Virginia fall far below levels in our neighboring states. What roles do business, local government, and philanthropy have to play to promote sustainable energy sources? And what immediate, tangible steps can our region take towards a greener future?
Keynote Speaker is Sanjiv Mahan, President, WGL Energy.
