EVENT:

GoingGreen Silicon Valley 2010

Cleantech and Environmentalism

12 October 2010 - 14 October 2010
San Francisco, California, USA

 

description

What defines the cleantech industry and do cleantech priorities differ from environmentalist priorities? What is cleantech? Where in the cleantech continuum do you classify clean coal, oil or gas, or 3rd+ generation nuclear power? What about genomics and nanotech? Are these clean and sustainable technologies? Even wind and solar energy have an environmental footprint - many solar projects are stopped in their tracks by environmentalist lawsuits. How can cleantech address the challenge to create clean, sustainable resource abundance in the world, yet conform to environmentalist expectations? Is this possible? What clean technologies are both cost-competitive, clean and sustainable, and also environmentally correct?
