Sutherland is a proud sponsor of the series, which features presentations on issues surrounding clean energy in the Southeastern United States, including the projected need for electric energy and oil and natural gas, and the opportunities and challenges for meeting those needs with clean energy technologies.
Join us on April 18, 2012 (12:30-2 p.m.) for the next installment, titled "Building Consensus on the Role of Clean Energy and Clean Tech." Participants can attend for free in the Centergy Building on Georgia Tech’s campus or via Webinar.
Clean Energy and Clean Technology continue to play increasingly significant roles in meeting future energy needs as evidenced by the growth of numerous markets across the U.S. and globally. As an example, in 2011, worldwide spending on solar projects totaled $136 billion while U.S. spending equaled $56 billion. At the same time, worldwide investments from venture capital, corporate RD&D and government R&D sources in the development of Clean Tech exceeded $10 billion. (Bloomberg New Energy Finance)
The use of Clean Technology has not been without debate. Is there a path for Republicans and Democrats, government and industry, and the U.S. and the rest of the world to come together and advance the role for Clean Tech?
This seminar features speakers Reid Detchon (Executive Director, Energy Future Coalition) and Jay Hakes (Director, Carter Presidential Library).
