      Many traditional early stage investors have de-emphasized clean tech or pulled out altogether, so where can you go to fund your new company? Many traditional venture investors are still participating in this sector, although they tend to be smaller and more focused. But there are many others. Have you considered private equity, corporate venture funds, federal or state grants, international venture investors, prizes or family offices? Come hear about these less well-known new funding sources and get advice from the experts.

          • Cost and Technology Projections for Solar and Wind


            from Clean Energy Group / Added

            For those who were unable to attend the National Summit on RPS in early November of 2013, we have repeated two well-received presentations from the Summit. David Feldman of the National Renewable Energy Lab provided an update on the solar industry, including current and likely future trends related to global PV demand, production capacity, costs, system designs, and market penetration. Ryan Wiser of Lawrence Berkeley National Lab discussed past and future wind energy cost, performance, and pricing trends. This webinar originally aired on December 17, 2013. Slides from this webinar are available as a pdf here: http://www.cesa.org/assets/Uploads/RPS-Webinar-Presentation-Cost-and-Technology-Projections-for-Solar-and-Wind.pdf

                People tend to think of innovation in research as being for the sake of economic growth or a more convenient life. This way of thinking, however, could be extremely detrimental for the future of the human race. This presentation will describe two dangerous paradoxes in current education and research, and suggest a possible approach to remedy the situation.

                • Fuels Paradise: A Conversation on Nuclear and Renewable Energy Technologies

                  In the wake of the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico—arguably America's worst environmental disaster—does nuclear power look any more appealing than it did after the Three Mile Island accident in 1979? Or are wind- and solar-power America's safest energy alternatives to fossil fuel? Michael Corradini, chair of Engineering Physics and the Wisconsin Distinguished Professor of Nuclear Engineering and Engineering Physics at UW-Madison, and Jane Davidson, chair in Renewable Energy and director of the Solar Energy Laboratory at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, discuss how the science surrounding these technologies developed over the last several decades, and what science tells us about the pros and cons of these energy systems. Recorded on October 7, 2010, at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art Lecture Hall.

The Census, which is based on over 75,000 phone calls and emails to solar industry employers, determined that the solar industry grew at ten times the national average last year, creating 24,000 new jobs. Survey respondents cited declining equipment costs as the primary driver behind the industry's remarkable growth and were optimistic about creating new jobs in 2014. Since the start of the annual Census in 2010, U.S. solar industry employment has increased 53 percent and now employs more than 142,000 Americans.

Scott Sklar, Chair, Steering Committee, Sustainable Energy Coalition; President, Stella Group, Ltd. Download Scott Sklar's slides: http://files.eesi.org/ScottSklar03281... The $3.9 trillion budget proposal reflects the Administration's "all of the above" energy strategy as well as its focus on climate change, following the unveiling of the President's Climate Action Plan in June 2013. Speakers from the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Congressional Research Service (CRS) gave an overview of the budget requests for various clean energy programs, explained budget priorities, and provided context on how these priorities and trends compared to prior years. The proposed 2015 budget increases the Department of Energy's (DOE) funding by 2.6 percent over 2014 enacted levels, but reduces the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) by 3.8 percent. The President's budget includes a $1 billion Climate Fund and a $56 billion infrastructure package that the Administration says would be used to "help our communities prepare for the effects of climate change." Related initiatives seek to make the electricity grid more resilient, not only to disasters but to attacks as well. Also of note is a requested increase of 26 percent over 2014 appropriations for the Department of Transportation. The increase is intended to go some ways to address the $86 billion maintenance backlog and help fund more energy efficient modes of transportation. The President's budget also calls for the elimination of fossil fuel subsidies, while proposing to make tax credits for renewable energy production permanent.
