Conference Highlights

April 3

Keynote Speakers

Bill McKibben is one of America's best known environmentalists. As a bestselling author, he has written books that, over the last quarter century, have shaped public perception–and public action–on climate change, alternative energy, and the need for more localized economies. McKibben is the founder of, the first big global grassroots climate change initiative.

Woodrow W. Clark II, MA3, Ph. D., a long-time advocate for the environment and renewable energy, is an internationally recognized author, lecturer, public speaker and advisor specializing in economics and policies for global sustainable communities in the “Green Industrial Revolution” (GIR). He was one of the contributing scientists to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UNIPCC), which as an organization was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in December 2007 along with Al Gore and his film “An Inconvenient Truth.

Plenary Panel

Invited industry and government experts will speak about the future of energy.


April 4

Keynote Speaker

Scott Brusaw will speak about the Solar Roadways Project whose goal is to replace petroleum-based asphalt roads and surfaces—whether interstate highways, downtown streets, residential lanes, or dirt and gravel roads—with a series of structurally engineered Solar Road Panels that can be driven on by cars and trucks and collect solar energy that can in turn be used to power nearby homes, stores and businesses, amusement parks, schools, and remote military locations. Furthermore, the Solar Roadway has the capacity to evolve into an intelligent, self-healing, decentralized (and secure) power grid, which would allow homes or businesses to receive power and data signals through their parking lots and driveways.
