If you're in the bay area on June 14th...

...You might check out a panel session I'm helping to organize for the VC Task Force, [note: rescheduled from original date, to better fit schedules] on the topic of early lessons in clean energy investing. Diana Propper of Expansion Capital Partners will be moderating, and Raj Atluru (Managing Director, DFJ), Scott Benner (Shareholder, Heller Ehrman), Ira Ehrenpreis (General Partner, Technology Partners) and Dave Pearce (CEO, Miasole) will also be speaking on the panel.

The idea is to bring together these clean energy industry participants who also have extensive experience in more "traditional" technology areas, to share their thoughts on what's similar and what's not, what works and what doesn't. Not so much a primer on cleantech; instead, a sharing of best practices.

It's a terrific group with a lot to say, so I'm looking forward to it...

I'd be interested in attending, but as a law student the price is a little prohibitive. Is there a student price?

That's up to the VC Task Force, you'll have to ask them...

Hello Rob,

Maybe you can include a speaker also focused on decentralized systems for the nearly 2B that currently have no electricity source?

In the modern world, renwables can help protect the environment and sustain our energy needs.

In the developing world, renewables help protect/resurrect peoples' voice, along with protecting the environment and sustaining needs.

If you would like to learn more about one such approach, check out Green Empowerment at www.greenempowerment.org
