Climate Tech Influencers and Trends

12th Annual Energy Conference: Influencers and Trends in ClimateTech

October 21, 2021

This year’s annual energy conference will focus on the various influencers impelling the climate tech sector forward and the trends therein. There is no question that this sector is as hot as it has ever been and, given recent funding, legislation, policy, ESG initiatives and investor and consumer demand, there is also very little question that it will only get hotter.

Speakers will include key decision makers from large corporations, public and private investment firms, government, agencies, utilities, banks, non-profits and other industry leaders.

Over the course of its twelve years, this event has attracted thousands and continues to be a launching point for key connections and collaborations leading to economic growth and solutions for Southern California’s evolving needs and sustainability goals.

Please join us and our Event Partners, Elevation Ventures and Octane, for a close look into the world of climate tech.
