With energy prices soaring worldwide and global climate change accelerating, the importance of green technologies like solar and wind energy has never been greater. However, at this early stage, there are more questions than answers in green tech. What are the opportunities and challenges in green tech investing? What role will government policy and incentives play in driving investment and innovation? What will drive technological advances in developed and developing countries? Can solar, wind and other green technologies solve the global energy crisis?
This panel discussion brings together four leading experts from the venture capital, scientific, and business communities to offer their perspectives on the outlook for green tech, and the political and economic impact for countries that become green tech leaders versus those that fall behind.
