UC Santa Barbara to Host 3rd Annual Global Energy Summit

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on January 22nd, 2008

The University of California Santa Barbara's Technology Management Program will assemble entrepreneurs, investors, technologists and senior policy makers from China, British Columbia and California at the Emerging Energy Technologies Summit on the UCSB campus, Corwin Pavilion, February 8th and 9th.

As demand for efficient and clean energy rises around the world, California's technology, economic and political capital is helping to effect world change with global partners. Representatives from CA Energy Commission, PG&E, and Sempra Energy will discuss funding opportunities. Several international Venture Capitalists: American River Ventures, Cycad Group, NGEN Partners, and US-China Capital Partners, will share investment criteria, what types of energy solutions they are funding and why.

A large market driver of energy costs, China's response to such demands is ripe with opportunity for North American firms to address critical global problems and accelerate the next wave in technology innovation. Presenters to address this topic include Cambridge Energy Research Associates, Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd., and UCSB's Partnership (China-US) for International Research and Education.

British Columbia, long bridged to the Pacific Rim, works across borders creating innovative public and private partnerships to stimulate economic growth and energy solutions. British Columbia energy technology business leaders will speak along with representatives from Canada-California Strategic Innovation Partnership Initiative, British Columbia Premier's Technology Council and Climate Action Team, along with BC Hydro.

"This annual energy summit has proven to be an important venue for identification of early stage technologies, funding opportunities and potential deal generation between researchers, entrepreneurs and investors, complimented by insights from policymakers," said Gary Hansen, Associate Dean, Technology Management Program in the College of Engineering.

Registration for the conference is $200 until February 1st. Complete information on the Energy Summit is available at: www.c2c.ucsb.edu.
