WASHINGTON DC, May 11 – The American Clean Power Association announced additional panels that will be featured at CLEANPOWER 2022, the nation’s preeminent renewable energy conference. CLEANPOWER will again bring together the industry’s thought leaders and decision makers to discuss and showcase the most important issues facing the energy industry today. With a focus on “Building the Clean Energy Economy,” the conference will take place at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas from May 16–18.
PANEL: Transmission Policy and Buildout
Transmission is critical to linking clean energy resources to one another for resource diversity, reliability, and resilience. This panel will explore opportunities to proactively plan, site, and construct transmission from four visionaries with a range of perspectives: transmission developer, large C&I consumer, legislator, and grid manager.
Moderator: Michael Garland

PANEL: Bringing Green Hydrogen Within Reach
Hydrogen-fueled heavy industries have so far been out of reach for decarbonization at an achievable price point. Now, the nascent domestic green hydrogen industry is solving this issue and in turn creating exciting opportunities for clean energy. This panel will discuss state and federal initiatives, technological innovations and barriers, and policy advocacy needed.
Moderator: Jacob Susman, CEO and Co-Founder, Ambient Energy
Janice Lin, Founder and President, Green Hydrogen Coalition
Megan Reusser, PE Senior Development Engineer, Burns & McDonnell
