The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will host the seventh annual UNC Clean Tech Summit. The event convenes more than 1,000 students, business professionals, international speakers, policy members, and academics for two days of engagement to foster leadership, share new ideas, and bring growth opportunities to the Southeast’s clean tech economy. The Summit is co-hosted by the UNC Institute for the Environment and the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School.

This year’s theme, “Innovating to a Clean Economy” will feature keynote speakers, panels, workshops, and TedTalk-style engagement opportunities for the following topics.

Jennifer Chen, senior counsel for federal energy policy at Duke University's Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, will participate in a panel discussion about grid modernization during an afternoon breakout session on the first day of the summit.
