April 26, 2023 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM ET

This webinar featured a panel discussion with leaders from California, Connecticut, Minnesota, New Mexico, and North Carolina on the status of their states’ efforts to decarbonize. They discussed where they think their states are making the most progress, what the most significant challenges are, and what the opportunities are for close state-federal cooperation and for greater cooperation among states. This webinar will help set the stage for an upcoming event in Washington, DC, Advancing Towards 100% Clean Energy: A State-Federal Summit, which will take place on May 17-18.
