Join Clean Energy Connections at the official Meetup for the NYC BigApps Cleanweb Track:
Cleanweb: Is IT the Secret to a New Energy Future?
By tapping into big data analytics, the coming 'internet of things', and the ever expanding portfolio of open data, cleanweb has become a cost-effective way to drive resource efficiency and scale current clean energy solutions. Whether it's a platform that uses satellites to easily assess a solar project, a Facebook app that tracks and gamifies energy use, or a website that brings together all stakeholders in a commercial office space, the cleanweb is the excitement at the convergence of communications and energy tech. With 18% of all cleantech deals since 2009 encompassing cleanweb (hello Zipcar!), it might provide an answer for cleantech’s overall downturn in global investing.
For the next Clean Energy Connections, we discuss the future of this industry with the leaders who are in the trenches. With New York a firm leader in data analysis, social media, and enterprise tech, we'll hear where the natural competitive advantages really are. Join us as we explore the questions that surround cleanweb, and what investors, utilities, researchers, and web companies can do to capture its momentum.
