Event Details

Powering InnovationKatie Fehrenbacher, Reporter, GigaOm
David Crane, CEO, NRG 
Adam Lowry, Co-Founder and Chief Greenskeeper, Method Products
Arun Majumdar, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Stanford; former Vice President for Energy, Google

Amazon, Apple, Google and your local power company: One of these things is not like the other. But NRG Energy executive David Crane says utilities should aspire to be in league with the strongest tech brands. What’s at stake? Electric companies must quickly find innovative ways to deliver clean and affordable energy, or more severe weather will destabilize the global economy. Government regulation alone won’t get the job done. 

NRG is involved with some of the largest solar energy projects in the world including Ivanpah and Agua Caliente in California. Crane says consumers should have choices and that doesn’t mean deciding between powering your home today and the health of your family and our planet tomorrow. Katie Fehrenbacher writes about how innovative technologies are bringing exciting new changes to the way America produces and uses energy. Join us for a conversation about innovation, connected lifestyles and powering our future.

Location: SF Club Office
Time: 5:30 p.m. check-in, 6 p.m. program, 7 p.m. networking reception
Cost: $20 non-members, MEMBERS FREE, $7 students (with valid ID)
Also know: The speakers and audience will be videotaped for future broadcast on the Climate One TV show on KRCB TV 22 on Comcast and DirecTV.
