Experts predict that up to 8 trillion yuan ($1.28 trillion) will be invested in the development of China’s green economy in its current Five-Year Plan (2011-15) period. By 2030, China is expected to more than double its power generating capacity. As China industrializes at a dramatic pace, government and business leaders recognize that this development must happen in a way that addresses the country’s rising pollution levels and constraints on natural resources. Both growth opportunities and environmental challenges abound. Targets for increasing investment in non-fossil fuels, reducing energy consumption per capita, rethinking transportation norms, and building low-carbon cities all represent innovation opportunities for China.

The EDGE Forum on Cleantech in China at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business will look at China’s sustainable development future and its implications for the private sector. We will get a first look at the key trends and market insights from the 2014 China Greentech Report, and then hear from a panel of entrepreneurs about the realities of launching and scaling cleantech ventures in China. Speakers include: Elle Carberry, Co-Founder and Managing Director, China Greentech Initiative; Anthony Atti, CEO, Phononic; Taryn Sullivan, CEO, Efficiency Exchange; Tom Darden, CEO, Cherokee Investment Partners; Shu Ching Quek, CEO, Novuswave; and more.

The Forum will conclude with a networking event with Triangle-area executives, entrepreneurs, investors, and Duke faculty, researchers, and students.

Convened by EDGE in partnership with the Duke University Energy Initiative.
