From start-ups to large corporations and national governments, organizations worldwide are embracing cleantech as a means of growth, efficiency and competitive advantage. According to the National Intelligence Council, global demand for energy is projected to jump by 50 percent by the year 2030. Initiatives today are addressing this demand through venture capitalist impact investing, partnerships between the public and private sectors and policy analysis of the recent energy trends. As cleantech enables the transformation of a variety of industries, old and new, to be part of a more resource-efficient and low-carbon economy, we see innovation in technology, business models, financing mechanisms, cross-industry partnerships and corporate adoption.
Join our panel of experts to discuss this evolving space, particularly, new incentives and drivers that are emerging to fund these ventures.
