A discussion of the clean tech market in New England
The 5th Conference on Clean Energy will be held in Boston next week, on November 12 & 13. Once again, LP&P's clean energy practice, which I co-lead, has partnered with the Conference on communications. The conference, sponsored by the Massachusetts Technology Transfer Center and the Massachusetts Hydrogen Coalition, focuses on the hot topics driving clean energy innovation and growth in New England. There will be panels featuring representatives of the region's clean energy companies and venture capital firms. Additionally, forty early-stage companies will be presenting to investors.
As part of our pre-show activities, we have collaborated with Xconomy on a podcast with some of region's key VCs in clean tech. Hosted by Wade Roush, the site's chief correspondent, the podcast features John Karlen of Flybridge and Russ Landon of Canaccord Adams discussing the recent IPO of A123, the state of the solar market and how they would grade the Obama administration on clean tech. You'll also hear about the importance of the smart grid, the negative impact of stimulus funds on the clean energy market, and what new markets to keep an eye on.
You can follow the discussion of the Conference by participants and attendees both prior and at the show at on Twitter #CCE-2009.
