The Monterey Bay International Trade Association, TradePort and California’s Global Trade Community invite you to the Global Smart Energy- Bilateral Trade and Investment Opportunities conference on November 13, 2009.
Featuring several clean tech experts hailing from Chevron Energy Service (CES), the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), NASA and other small business sectors, the conference will discuss the obstacles and business opportunities faced in the emerging “smart grid” industry.
Following President Obama’s announcement of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Smart Grid Investment Grant awards totaling $3.4 billion on October 27, 2009, which will drive the development and deployment of the “smart grid”, this conference will discuss the possible investment opportunities for the U.S. and VC companies, both in the domestic and international “smart grid” arena, focusing on the small-medium enterprises.
The Global Smart Energy — Bilateral Trade and Investment Opportunities conference will highlight the need for changes in the energy sector in order to keep up with the anticipated energy renovations. There are still plenty of technology research and development needed to meet the demands of the future electric power grid.
The conference will also discuss the latest news in renewable energy development in transportation, including using wind and solar energy in electric vehicles. The conference will further cover the emergence of “Micro Grids” and how they power their respective communities and save energy by selling back the excess to their energy utility, as well as discussing the efficiencies that will come from “Micro Grids” and how they promote cooperation to maintain a mutual and beneficial financial relationship.
