The Evolution of Green
The transformation to a clean and sustainable civilization encompasses every imaginable technology and industry. With the initial momentum of the favored green sectors slowed by economic reality and political reassessment, what cleantech sectors quietly advance, relatively immune to transient trends? In addition to energy and transportation, how is clean technology creating opportunities in water, agriculture, construction, infrastructure and waste management? How are enabling technologies in materials sciences and genomics catalyzing these opportunities?
- Moderator: J. Hovey Kemp, Partner, Goodwin Procter
- Anup Jacob, Partner, Virgin Green Fund
- Kevin Genieser, Managing Director, Head of Clean Energy Investment Banking, Morgan Stanley
- Marc van den Berg, Managing Director, Vantage Point Venture Partners
- Raj Atluru, Managing Director, Draper Fisher Jurvetson
Financing the Green 21st Century
How do you finance renewables in an economic environment of tight credit and lower prices for conventional energy? How can next-generation infrastructure upgrades using clean technology – not just in energy, but in water, transportation and construction – secure viable financing while still delivering solutions that create a net benefit for consumers instead of an additional economic burden? Is the expectation of some sort of climate or energy legislation holding up investment in energy technology? What emerging energy technologies are so competitive they can emerge regardless of government assistance?
- Moderator: John Gimigliano, Partner, Energy & Sustainability, KPMG
- Langley P. Eide, Vice President, Global Technology Equity Capital Markets
- Trae Vassallo, Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers
- Jon Sakoda, Partner, NEA
- Peter O’Rourke, Senior Advisor to the Executive Director, Loan Program Office, U.S. Department of Energy
