Demonstrate Deploy Decarbonize 2023 is a first annual gathering of senior leaders in industry and across sectors to build momentum towards demonstrating new clean energy and decarbonization technologies, deploying them at scale, and decarbonizing the U.S. economy.
Co-hosted by the Cleantech Leaders Climate Forum and the Department of Energy’s Loan Programs Office, Deploy23 is about catalyzing deployment and investment to scale up the next generation of infrastructure to achieve net zero – while creating good jobs, strengthening domestic supply chains, and ensuring benefits are equitably shared.
In 2022, the LPO and the DOE created a multi-track Clean Energy Business Forum as part of the Global Clean Energy Action Forum (GCEAF), to engage an ecosystem of stakeholders and potential applicants in an active discussion across key sectors to highlight investment opportunities in the emerging $23 trillion market in clean energy solutions. The Business Forums also provided a foundation to launch DOE’s Pathways to Commercial Liftoff reports, quarterbacked by the Office of Technology Transitions, which capture the key barriers and opportunities for capital allocators to get technologies to scale across clean energy sectors central to the mission of DOE.
Building on the success of GCEAF, Cleantech Leaders Climate Forum and LPO are launching Deploy23 on September 26 and 27, 2023.
Decision makers, capital allocators, community leaders, and others across the clean energy supply chain will gather for two days at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. to participate in facilitated dialogue around opportunities and challenges to reaching scale.
Deploy23 is an opportunity to explore new solutions, workshop ideas, hear emerging insights, and meet market leaders.
While in-person participation is by invitation only, select content will be made available on DOE channels after Deploy23.
Programming will center on the Deploy Dialogues – facilitated workshops designed to surface solutions to challenges in deployment of clean technology investments across key sectors. The main workshop focus areas for Deploy23 will be:
- Industrial Decarbonization:
- Carbon Capture and Sequestration
- Industrial Heat
- Chemicals and Refining
- Procurement and Buy-side Mobilization
- Grid Modernization
- Virtual Power Plants
- Carbon Dioxide Removal
Plenaries will set the stage for meaningful discussion through keynotes and fireside chats with senior Administration officials, C-suite executives of clean energy and infrastructure companies, thought leaders on key technologies poised for commercial liftoff, and community leaders managing real build-out.
Side programming will include specialized seminars on topics of interest and office hours, with informal opportunities to interface with government and industry leaders. Space and time will also be devoted to facilitated networking and matchmaking, to encourage clean energy project development.
