Our annual GreenNet 2010 conference is quickly approaching; it will be held on April 29th at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco. Among many notable speakers will be Googler and former NASA astronaut Ed Lu — and if you register before midnite PT on Friday, you’ll get a discount.
Produced in conjunction with the cleantech experts from Earth2Tech, this year’s GreenNet event will focus on the intersection of environmentally conscious technology, the Internet and emerging technologies. Information and communications technologies could enable emissions reductions to 15 percent below current levels by 2020, the Climate Group has predicted. Whether you’re in a corporation wanting to learn about best green IT practices or an entrepreneur looking for your next venture, GreenNet will arm you with the best ideas all while allowing you to network with the industry’s most influential players.
Last year’s GreenNet event sold out, and this year’s promises to as well, since in addition to Lu — who oversees the PowerMeter project at Google — attendees will get to hear from the long list of cleantech movers and shakers below. Register for GreenNet here by the end of the day tomorrow, and you can take advantage of a discount ticket price of $395. We hope to see you there!
