Description

Within the HiT Barcelona World Innovation Summit will be the CleanTech Innovation Marketplace.
This conference will unite the drivers of clean technology innovation from around the world, in Barcelona, as a central location and major renewable energy hotbed. The CleanTech space is one of the few sectors that continues to grow despite the global economic downturn and economists expect that it will be one of the drivers that will help us get the world economy back on track; for example, private equity and venture capital deals in clean technology reached $8.4 billion of venture investment in 2008, up 38% from the previous year (Source: Greentech Media and the Cleantech Group).

The main components of the CleanTech Innovation Marketplace include:
• Keynote Presentations & Panel Discussions from Industry Leaders
• The CleanTech Innovation Tournament (winners to be announced at Awards Luncheon)
• “Speed Networking” (between potential investors, corporate partners and/or start-up companies)
• Booth Demonstrations/CleanTech Innovation Zone

Themes to be addressed:
• The State of the Global CleanTech Investment Landscape
• Who's Leading the Charge Globally on Clean Transportation
• Green Building Development Worldwide
• Clean Technologies: Beyond Energy
• The Development of Clean Energy Infrastructure and Smart-Grid Innovation
• International Policy and Incentives
