Join us for the 2022 NAE Annual Meeting
October 2-3 in Washington DC.

Excitement is building for the 2022 NAE Annual Meeting and this year’s theme, Energy Transitions.

Why Now?  Net-zero emissions. As a goal, this is one of the most critical and defining challenges of the post-industrial era. Even today, we remain under the dense cloud generated by the infrastructure upon which our modern technology was built and its effectiveness is dependent. With all of our creativity and capability, rising from under this cloud to achieve the net-zero standard would require enormous coordination and cooperation across sectors, industries and nations. This is the time for engineers to partner with other sectors and prepare for bold action.

Why NAE? The 2022 NAE Annual Meeting taps into the depth of knowledge of our member-experts whose expertise covers a broad range of energy topics including solar power, renewable energy, modular reactors, and more. Their decades-long experience finding creative solutions, researching data and sharing information provide insights into technology pathways to a clean energy transition.

Attend. Absorb. Collaborate. Act.   Register now for the 2022 NAE Annual Meeting.

Event Highlights

New Member Inductions
After two years of meeting virtually, 2022 marks the return to convening our NAE community in-person to induct new members from the Classes of 2020, 2021, and 2022 into the Academy! NAE Chair Donald C. Winter will give opening remarks, followed by the president’s address by NAE President John L. Anderson and the separate inductions of each of the three classes.

Awards Celebrations
Recipients of the Simon Ramo Founders Award, Arthur M. Bueche Award, Gibbs Brothers Medal, and the Bernard M. Gordon Prize Lecture will be recognized, followed by an evening celebratory reception.

Special Lecture:  Meeting the Energy-Climate Challenge
Civilization’s systems of energy supply and use are the principal drivers of global climate change, and the need to limit the harm from that change constitutes the most demanding driver of transformation in those systems. This energy-climate nexus poses one of the greatest scientific, engineering, and policy challenges of our time. NAE Member John P. Holdren, Teresa and John Heinz Research Professor of Environmental Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, will discuss the challenges and what lies ahead.

Forum:  Transitioning to Net-Zero Carbon: Engineering Challenges and Opportunities
A line-up of energy experts will present diverse views that address both the challenges and opportunities. Television personality and founder/CEO of Future Engineers, Deanne Bell, will moderate the panel.
