On March 14–16, GreenBiz presents the VERGE DC conference in Washington, D.C. VERGE DC focuses on the convergence of four technologies — energy, information, buildings and transportation, and how it will transform our businesses, our leisure time and our everyday lives (which GreenBiz has coined as VERGE). VERGE technologies are radically improving efficiencies and yielding a new generation of smarter, innovative products and services.
Join the conversation and connect with a diverse group of executives in energy management, sustainability, utilities, building management, fleets and logistics, government and policy, R&D, and corporate financing.
Highlights of the extensive speaker roster at VERGE DC include Daryl Dulaney, the president and CEO of Siemens Industry, who will lead a keynote panel on how to make a VERGE City. He will discuss how global metropolitan areas are preparing for smart, sustainable cities (look for some great insights on integrating emerging technologies, developing nontraditional partnerships and drastically improving city efficiencies).
VERGE DC also features Tim O’Reilly of O’Reilly Media in a keynote interview on the evolution of data. In a VERGE world, global organizations will be required to go beyond analytics to understand the generative value of data.
Dave Stangis, the VP of CSR, Sustainability and Community Affairs for Campbell’s Soup, will lead a session on integrating renewables and on-site generation. He will focus on the changing economics for renewable technologies and discuss who’s taking advantage of them and how distributed energy fits into sustainability strategies.
