Energy used to be a one-way street. Today, it's becoming a bi-directional superhighway with utility customers finally taking charge of their power use and how much they pay for it. Instead of drilling into short-term IT issues and arcane arm-chair politicking involved in this shift, GreenBeat 2009 will map out the hottest business and technology opportunities the Smart Grid has to offer.
GreenBeat 2009 is the place to connect with the people leading Smart Grid initiatives, including Noble Peace Prize winner Al Gore and John Doerr. Join the most influential leaders of the national discussion around the Smart Grid, when John Doerr kicks off GreenBeat 2009 with a keynote on the eve of November 18 followed by a full day of provocative panel discussions, roundtables, and start-up company presentations - with the highlight being a keynote presentation from Al Gore.
