Fall 2023 Clean Energy Conference

The Sustainable Clean Energy Summit: Decarbonizing Society and the Grid


2023 is likely to be the hottest year globally on record. But looking back decades from now, it may be considered mild, as temperatures continue to climb from the effects of climate change. Unless we do more to stop it — and the time is now.

We all have a role to play. To decarbonize our society and the electric grid requires forward-looking and diverse thinking, strong, committed leadership, and collaboration. And there’s no time to waste. That’s why UConn and Eversource Energy are bringing together representatives from industry, government, academia and beyond to discuss the sustainable clean energy challenges and solutions for UConn, Connecticut and our region.

  • Hear from six student teams who will present their innovative research ideas to reduce carbon footprints and prepare for climate extremes.
  • Panel discussions will feature key decision makers who will highlight the challenges of decarbonizing the grid while maintaining reliability and resiliency – including the role of emerging technologies such as hydrogen and geothermal.
  • Join us! Be a part of a growing community focused on advancing clean energy, developing the workforce of the future and creating a healthier, more sustainable path forward for us all.
