06 Dec 2021

The American Clean Power Association (ACP) kicks off the CLEANPOWER 2021 event in Salt Lake City on December 7 with discussions on the economy and outlook for the renewable energy sector with three leading White House officials. CLEANPOWER is the most innovative renewable energy conference that brings together the most knowledgeable minds in the clean energy industry to create a collaborative platform for discussing issues that are important to industry professionals and their companies. ​

ACP CEO Heather Zichal will host virtual conversations on Day One of the conference with:

Brian Deese, Director
White House National Economic Council

Tuesday, December 7, 2021

Brian Deese serves as the Director of the White House National Economic Council, advising President Biden on domestic and international economic policy and coordinating the economic agenda of the Biden‐Harris Administration. A former Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama who was instrumental both in engineering the rescue of the U.S. auto industry and in negotiating the landmark Paris Climate Agreement, Deese is a crisis‐tested advisor with broad experience in accelerating economic prosperity, empowering working Americans, and harnessing the economic opportunities that come from building a clean energy economy and combating the climate crisis.

12:00 PM – 12:20 PM MT​

Ali Zaidi, Deputy National Climate Advisor

President Biden established the Climate Policy Office in January 2021. The Office convenes the National Climate Task Force, which assembles Cabinet-level leaders from across 21 federal agencies and departments. It also convenes a wide range of interagency working groups to assist the National Climate Task Force on federal actions to reduce climate pollution in every sector of the economy; increase resilience to the impacts of climate change; protect public health; conserve our lands, waters, oceans, and biodiversity; deliver environmental justice; and spur good-paying, union jobs and economic growth.

“It’s a privilege and an honor to host conversations with both the NEC and Climate Policy Office at CLEANPOWER 2021. Attendees will truly benefit from this direct connection to the White House and the latest intel and insights on the economy and outlook for the renewable energy sector,” said ACP CEO Heather Zichal.

Day Two of the conference continues with insights on the economy and energy policy from:

Lawrence H. Summers, Charles W. Eliot University Professor and President Emeritus at Harvard University and former Secretary of Treasury

Dr. Lawrence Summers is one of America’s leading economists. In addition to serving as 71st Secretary of the Treasury in the Clinton Administration, he served as Director of the White House National Economic Council in the Obama Administration, as President of Harvard University, and as the Chief Economist of the World Bank. His tenure at the U.S. Treasury coincided with the longest period of sustained economic growth in U.S. history. Summers is the only Treasury Secretary in the last half century to have left office with the national budget in surplus. He has played a key role in addressing every major financial crisis for the last two decades.​
