October 25, 2012
The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) 25th Industry Growth Forum this week attracted nearly 400 investors, entrepreneurs, scientists and policymakers to Denver.
The two-day forum highlighted clean energy industry technology and business developments. In addition to hearing business case presentations from thirty clean energy companies, including eight Colorado companies, participants participated in a comprehensive agenda of in-depth panel discussions and networking opportunities.
“There is a necessity to approach our energy issues differently in the future and this requires high levels of technical and business innovation,” said Bill Farris, NREL Associate Laboratory Director for Innovation Partnering and Outreach. “This forum brought together the entrepreneurs, investors and policymakers that are critical to bringing those innovations to the market for transformational change.”
More than $4 billion has been raised by companies presenting at the Forum since 2003.
