Good Resources on Renewable Energy in Maine
May 25th, 2011
There are two great events happening tomorrow in Boston and NYC.
In New York City, Clean Energy Connections along with NYC ACRE will be hosting the “Value of a Negawatt: Startups & The Energy Efficiency Boom”. Tickets can be on the Clean Energy Connections homepage.
More details on both events below.
More on Energy Bar
I’m very excited to start Energy Bar. Why? I love Venture Cafe’s credo of place-based social networking. Friendships are the key to innovation and trust, part of something we also believe at Green Light Distrikt. We will not have any speakers at Energy Bar but do plan to have a theme for every gathering so that we can focus the audience.
Also, Venture Cafe has tended to attract the IT folks and the cleantech industry has a lot of overlaps with the IT world.
More on the Value of a Negawatt.
Clean Energy Connections has put together an amazing panel on a very meaningful issue, specifically for NYC.
This event is titled “Value of a Negawatt: Startups & the Energy Efficiency Boom”. Doors open at 6:30pm. Panel discussion begins at 7pm. Audience Q&A, and networking reception to follow. Tickets are $25 for general admission or $10 for students (must show ID at the door). You may purchase tickets at www.cleanecnyc.org
Experts estimate that at least 85% of New York City’s buildings will still be in use in 20 years. Our offices and homes, which for the most part consume huge amounts of electricity, are poorly insulated and have little incentive to change. The fastest, cheapest, and most effective way for New York to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions is by reducing the amount of energy that we consume. Innovation in technology and financing can help get us to scale, and with the hard work of the City’s green codes task force and the support of the Greater, Greener Buildings Laws, real changes are taking place.
Please join successful entrepreneurs, utility representatives, venture capitalists, and policymakers to explore the business case behind the implementation of new technologies, and drill down into the intricacies of the energy efficiency market and opportunities for growth in this sector.
