The 2010 Energy Summit is a signature event of both the Silicon Valley Leadership Group and the Stanford University Precourt Energy Efficiency Center, attracting a broad range of executives and representatives from influential Silicon Valley companies and organizations. Last year’s Summit drew a record crowd of more than 500 attendees, and we anticipate reaching capacity well before the event this year as well.
The 2010 Energy Summit is an essential event for members of the Silicon Valley business community. Practical and inspirational, it serves as a manual for sustainable business by combining current best practices with a guide to upcoming technologies and government regulation regarding energy.
During the one-day event, participants learn that sustainable energy use is about more than feel-good environmentalism; it is about planning for growth in a market of diminishing resources and changing stakeholder priorities.
