“Climate change, clean and efficient energy and environmental protection are among the greatest challenges facing the United States and China. Cooperation between the United States and China is critical to enhancing energy security, combating climate change, and protecting the environment and natural resources…”— U.S.-China Memorandum of Understanding to Enhance Cooperation on Climate Change, Energy and the Environment (July 2009)
With guest speakers such as Dan Kammen, author of over 90 publications and a book on environmental, technological, and health risks and numerous reports on renewable energy and development, Jonathan Woetzel, Director of McKinsey and Co., Greater China Office, and numerous others hailing from China’s leading clean tech companies such as Tsing Capital and Trina Solar, this conference is sure to bring new light to the world’s dependency on foreign oil, global warming concerns and other inefficiencies we currently face.
The panels of experienced speakers will give a glimpse into several topics including a vision of a low carbon future and what it takes to achieve it. This includes turning current research on climate change into practical implementation on certain green tech projects.
In addition, discussion will then cover China’s focus to further build its solar power capacity. The conference will discuss how to produce solar power competitively and steadily to compete with traditional electricity, as well as analyzing an upcoming project of building an international communication and R&D center without harming the surrounding area, including water and soil quality. The agenda will then focus on electric vehicles and where the sector stands and how the U.S. has invested more than $25 billion in the emerging division, yet China is the forefront leader in electric vehicles.
This dynamic discussion with the cooperation between the United States and China, two leaders pioneering clean tech advancements, will surely bring best practices to obstacles facing green technology. This is truly a conference you do not want to miss!
