  17. 17. A Vision for the National Capitol Region <br />+<br />6<br />A nationally coordinated clean energy commercialization effort is currently being developed and Virginia is poised to be the first state in the nation centrally focused on modeling and simulation in the energy and the environment. The realization of energy technology commercialization is being accomplished with these tools and new models. <br />Goal: Create the National Capitol Clean Energy Incubator with a focus on “energy” and the “environment” and the world’s largest modeling and simulation center focused on:<br />Climate forecasting and economic impact modeling<br />Distributed mathematical modeling and simulation<br />Sensor development<br />Energy efficiency (smart grid, building efficiency, materials)<br />Biomass and biofuels development<br />Water management, monitoring and problem solving<br />A World Data Center on Energy is under development.<br />
  18. 18. +<br />7<br />University and Research Support<br />NICCE tests distributed learning tools and uses training models like serious games to teach STEM;<br />NICCE is attracting researchers from around the world creating a climate for research and innovation; <br />The “Energy and Environmental Workforce Center of Excellence,” provides human capital as a feeder for defense firms within the NICCE’s consortium; <br />Community colleges provide certificates in specific energy domains, capturing career switchers now laid off<br />Focus is training a workforce with specific niche skills and bringing the people to the incubator’s core defense partners<br />

We are looking at twenty site locations <br />We believe the incubator needs to be in the heart of the defense corporate network<br />We believe the incubator needs to be in a high tech location<br />We believe the incubator needs to be on a Metro line<br />We believe the incubator needs to be near an airport<br />We believe the incubator needs to have recreational activities, shopping and night life with full onsite services for youth working around the clock<br />We believe the Dulles Corridor could meet our needs-next slides highlight a few researched locations<br />
