Description (excerpt): 

The  Advancing  Energy  Innovation  Regional  Dialogue,  held  on  October  15-­‐16,  2013,  in  Dearborn,   Michigan,  addressed  state  and  regional  business  and  institutional  barriers  and  opportunities  for   improved  innovation,  productivity,  and  competitiveness  in  the  Midwest  region.    The  dialogue   provided  an opportunity  to  learn  about  and  discuss  these  initiatives,  to  discuss  how  they  might   be  utilized  in  the  Midwest  states,  and  to  discuss  potential  collaborative  approaches  to   considering  or  adopting  them  among  some  of  the  states  in  the  region.  The  focus  was  on  pilot   projects,  financing  programs,  institutional  and  policy  initiatives,  and  creative  business  strategies   that  could  support  the  deployment  of  innovative  energy  products  and  services  while  ensuring   that  customer  and  supplier  benefits  and  risks  are  appropriately  balanced  and  shared.
