Details

October 3, 2013 9:00am - 2:20pm

Paul Brest Hall

The Steyer-Taylor Center will host a select group of senior entrepreneurs, investors, customers, and policymakers to conduct a post-mortem of Cleantech 1.0, and to identify practical steps to improve outcomes for Cleantech 2.0. Confirmed participants include leaders from:

  • Nth Power
  • EWF Partners
  • MNL Partners (Qiming Ventures)
  • Lux Capital
  • Silicon Valley Bank
  • A123
  • SunTech
  • Altenex
  • Clipper Windpower
  • AQT Solar
  • RES Americas
  • Natel Energy
  • Clear Path Energy
  • Recurrent Energy
  • Edison International
  • CAISO
  • NextEra Energy Resources
  • U.S. Dept. of Energy

This will not be another conversation dominated by theoreticians and pundits. It will be a candid discussion behind closed doors among leading clean tech players. Participants will be asked to share their in-the-trenches experiences with new energy technologies. We will discuss successes and failures, barriers to commercialization, investment trends in the U.S. and abroad, and pragmatic ideas for building a stronger, more successful Cleantech 2.0.
