Clean tech investing is at an all time high of $6 billion and flourishing in a range of sectors including the emerging area of green buildings and green construction. This will have a huge impact on energy use and CO2 emissions. With a demand for energy efficiencies, and electronic and software applications, investors from the corporate and venture capital communities are turning their heads in this direction.

"After six exciting years of growth, we are looking forward to 2008 being a monumental year for the industry, and as the caliber of our speakers and record attendance confirm -- now is the time to incorporate clean technology into the world economy," said Nicholas Parker, co-founder and chairman, Cleantech Group. "As more leaders from government and business engage in the global sustainability dialogue, clean technology innovations will contribute significantly to economic growth as well as fundamental human needs and environmental quality."
