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.
