The Rising Interest in Alternative Energy - From Efficiency to Innovation

Solar power, bio-fuel, fuel cells - venture investors and corporations are showing rising interest in clean-tech related technologies. According to Dow Jones VentureOne research, after a few years of exploration, VCs invested more than $1 billion in alternative energy-related technologies in 2006. High energy prices, innovative new technologies and seasoned management teams are playing a large role behind these investments.

But amid this upsurge in investing, serious questions stand out: Which sectors are generating the most traction? What types of companies will find success, and when? What kinds of business opportunities might today's greenwashing efforts be paving the way for, or is it nothing more than a PR ploy? How will government intervention help or hinder the energy landscape of the near future?
At Alternative Energy Innovations, attend the keynotes and panel discussions to get answers to these questions and more. Discussion topics include:

- The outlook for alternative energy consumption
- How Oil Giants are looking to utilize new energy sources
- Wall Street's acceptance of emerging energy technologies
- Where the better opportunities are - in the U.S. or overseas
- Which technologies are next on the radars of VCs
- Strategies for reaching customers in various sectors
