Current Revolution
Current Revolution is an original series of documentaries focused on the transformation of America’s electric grid.

The Hampton Roads area of Virginia is relatively unknown nationwide, but it is the region whose vulnerability to sea level rise most affects military readiness and our overall national security.

The Burden
The Burden is the first film to examine how America’s dependence on fossil fuels poses serious immediate and long-term national security threats – and how the military is taking a leading role in the battle for clean, renewable energy.

The building and maintenance of a modern, financially sustainable, secure, resilient energy and transportation infrastructure that aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals is a vital component to fighting climate change because it forms the foundation for providing certainty to capital and financial markets along with investor owned utilities and independent power producers while promoting innovation for developing and utilizing cleaner energy to fight climate change.

Our participants bring a range of Public Service along with Capital and Financial Market expertise in developing resources and establishing the polices that will enable a modern infrastructure, and we have limited space for inviting guests that each bring expertise and perspective to the challenge.

The GCAS is not about presentations or speeches, it is an opportunity for engagement and interaction with other Impact leaders in different areas of expertise to better understand what others are doing, how data can be leveraged, what proposed legislation can achieve, and where synergy and collaboration can contribute to a better collective and coordinated outcome to fight climate change.

We are excited about that expertise coming together, and expect the opportunity to both share and learn from each other will result in better coordinated implementation and adoption of regulations, legislation and strategies that leverage open data standards to enable Data Driven Decisions for encouraging emerging new technologies and tomorrows innovations.
