Energy Innovation 2013

January 29, 2013

The Information Technology and Innovation Foundation and the Breakthrough Institute are pleased to host "Energy Innovation 2013: Clean Energy, Ready for Primetime?" on January 29, 2013, at the JW Marriott in Washington, DC.

Clean energy is at a crossroads. Thanks to public investments in nations like the United States, Europe, and China, solar, wind and battery technologies have over the last five years improved significantly and become cheaper, but still not as cheap as fossil fuels. Moreover, these investments, including the wind tax credit, are now coming to an end. Meanwhile, innovations in the production of natural gas are displacing coal, generating billions in consumer energy savings, and becoming the cleaner energy leader few foresaw.

What is the future of clean energy? Never before has a clear-eyed assessment of clean tech - broadly defined - been more important. Please join us for this important conference.
