Harvard Club of San Francisco, Alston & Bird Host Three Visionary Organizations Driving Cleantech in the Bay Area

The third installment of the Harvard Club of San Francisco and Alston & Bird’s 2009 Cleantech Thought Leaders series will take place at Adobe’s LEED Platinum-certified San Jose headquarters on Tuesday, September 1.

Jonathan Livingston of Livingston Energy Innovations will provide a brief keynote address, immediately followed by a panel discussion with three leaders of prominent San Francisco Bay Area clean tech institutions:

  • Dan Adler, president, California Clean Energy Fund
  • Rex Northen, executive director, Cleantech Open
  • Melinda Richter, executive director, Environmental Business Cluster

Panelists will discuss the current environment for cleantech in the greater Bay Area, considering the impact of energy and climate legislation and the disbursement of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (stimulus) cleantech funding allocation. The panel will also consider what lies ahead for their respective organizations, for California, and for global cleantech over the next few years. A Q&A session will follow.

“The evening will focus on the challenges and accomplishments of our three panelists' organizations,” said Augie Rakow, board member of The Harvard Club and attorney at Alston & Bird. “They will highlight their organizations’ efforts to promote clean, efficient and profitable resource solutions. We hope attendees will be inspired by these real-life examples and take away some best practices.”

Registration costs $25 for the public and includes dinner. Early registration is encouraged.
