Two Recommended Green Tech Events in San Francisco


As media sponsor of the 5th Germany California Solar Day that took place in San Francisco last month, CleanTechies is pleased to announce another exciting green tech event organized by the German American Chamber of Commerce:

Mobility 2030: Transportation Technologies & Lifestyles of the Future

Organized by the German American Chamber of Commerce (GACC), alongside Volkswagen Group of America, Mobility 2030: Transportation Technologies & Lifestyles of the Future will examine the future of transportation, as it focuses on policy, energy, technology, mobility and society demands for the year 2030. Ever wonder what will happen in the next 20 years in regards to transportation? Will we be charging vehicles like cellular phones? How advanced will technologies be by 2030? Will we be on track with lowering greenhouse gas emissions? Listen and learn as expert speakers discuss these and other questions and what life in the U.S. may be by 2030. Best of all, this event is free.

The second event that we would like to recommend is part of the Clean Tech Thought Leader Series, a public program at the Harvard Club of San Francisco:

Harvard Club of San Francisco’s Ground, Water & Ice

Join the Harvard Club of San Francisco and Dennis Murphy, President of GroundSource Geo and recent winner of The Clean Tech Open, as he directs a panel of energy innovators aimed at new solutions to providing heating, cooling and hot water. Murphy will present a crash course on ground source heat pumps (GSHP), how ice storage and water gridding can greatly reduce energy demand throughout the built environment, as well as various uses of thermal transfer of energy including how ice rinks can heat your home. He will also present findings from his California Energy Commission study, Project Negatherm.

Attendance costs $15 for members of HCSF, Stanford SF, Ivy Plus, HBSA/NC and Columbia (members can also bring a guest for the cost of the member price), while non-members will pay $25, including dinner.
