The Junction Box is a new initiative to tap into the collective ideas and energy of the clean energy community to spur innovative policy and business solutions. Just as a junction box brings together electrical wires in a safe enclosure, these events will bring together our collective synapses in a safe space for discussion on emerging ideas for our industry. Please join us for our first session, focusing on proposals at the federal and state levels to advance low-carbon/clean fuels standards.
