Cleantech.org Professional Education
Cleantech.org Professional Webinar Series with Edward Beardsworth
Sciene Fiction as Science Fact. What do leading venture capitalists and global energy companies know that you don't? Why are they looking at and funding technologies like harvesting energy from thin air, and cold fusion, low energy nuclear reactions etc?
What's real and what's not?
This class will be a survey of the real world of bleeding edge energy technologies, not perpetual motion machines and "free" energy, but the technologies at the edge of science where credible companies are researching and pushing the envelope. We will provide a detailed survey of innovations that range from those that are near commercialization within the decade to those that will remain largely fiction. A description of what works and why, as well as what doesn’t.
Cleantech.org is proud to host Dr. Edward Beardsworth to bring you "Next Generation Energy - LENR/Cold Fusion/"Free Energy", Fact vs Fiction". Dr. Beardsworth is one of the leading experts globally on this topic.
- Are you looking for the next big thing in energy generation?
- Are you an investor trying to sort through what to invest?
- Are you a policy analyst, attorney, or consultant and have clients or bosses asking questions on what is science and what is science fiction?
When Ed says revolutionary, he means it: check out our first interview with him on new new energy.
Dr. Edward Beardsworth
As a strategic advisor, Dr. Beardsworth has been supporting corporate and investor clients, helping them to source widely and choose wisely among new technology opportunities. He possesses a deep, nuanced understanding of the complex energy and cleantech industry gained over his 30+ year career – setting him apart from relative newcomers to the industry. After earning a PhD in physics in 1972 from Rutgers University, he was in the group at Brookhaven National Lab that undertook interdisciplinary analyses of energy systems during the first energy crisis of the 1970s. Subsequently, he served in positions at the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), which has given him an insider's view of power systems and the utility industry. Dr. Beardsworth speaks the language of both technologists and investors, providing an important bridge between these two stakeholder groups.
Besides being Cleantech.org's Research Director, he's been Associate Director at Jane Capital Partners LLC, advisor to Nth Power, Garage Technology Ventures, and a consultant to the Cleantech Group. He previously managed the Hub Lab, a stealth R&D program funding revolutionary energy technologies, and managed the UFTO program, providing technology scouting to 30 of the top utility R&D and corporate venture arms.
