A new consortium has been formed to identify challenges and opportunities to address energy security and climate crisis on behalf of the US Government.
The Resilient Infrastructure + Secure Energy (RISE) Consortium aims to reimagine how energy is used, generated, transported and stored and how efficient, modern and resilient infrastructure can be built.
It will work with innovators and experts to rapidly deploy technologies for installation and operational energy, integrate energy and climate resilience into performance contracting and develop new business models to ensure those solutions are scalable.
The RISE Consortium, which has been established by R&D collaboration management firm ATI and consulting firm Converge Strategies, will also serve as an industry forum to engage on new federal energy and resilience policies, standards and programmes.
Chris Van Metre, CEO and President of ATI said: “ATI recognises the importance of confronting the energy security and climate crisis.
“For more than 20 years, we’ve seen the power of collaboration produce disruptive technologies that help solve our nation’s challenges. We’re confident in the foundation of the RISE Consortium and welcome industry and government to join us.”
