RISE Consortium: Collaborating With DoD to Enhance Energy and Climate Resilience

September 20, 2021 | 2:00 – 3:00 PM ET

The RISE Consortium seeks to address the energy security and climate crises by reimagining how the Department of Defense (DoD) uses, generates, transports, and stores energy and how it can build efficient, modern, resilient infrastructure. This webinar, hosted by TechConnect, will focus on the climate and energy security crises and highlight how the RISE Consortium is uniquely positioned to address them.

Join the RISE Consortium on September 20th at 2:00 PM ET to gain a better understanding of Other Transaction Authority (OTA), its growth throughout the Federal Government, and the benefits of joining the RISE Consortium to leverage the speed and flexibility of contracting through a consortium model.

To date, the RISE Consortium has welcomed more than 250 members who are committed to spurring innovation, commercialization, and deployment of innovative energy and infrastructure technologies to build a stronger, more resilient nation.
