About This Event

This leadership roundtable will feature up-to-the-minute thinking from some of the nation's foremost entrepreneurs, executives, and policymakers working in the field of energy efficiency. The discussion will showcase what is working now to build markets and drive new capital investments in smart building practices and innovative energy-saving technologies to jumpstart the flagging building and construction industry. Long hailed as "low hanging fruit," cost-effective energy-saving investments nonetheless face real hurdles in reaching mainstream adoption in real estate and energy markets. At a moment when elected officials in Washington are at an impasse on new legislation, these national leaders will offer their insights on the path forward for changing energy efficiency policies and innovating in business models, as the first step toward wide-scale global deployment of the coming clean energy economy.
