Preliminary Agenda 2017

  • Charting the Future Towards 2032: Welcome to Our Crystal Anniversary

    • Our innovation ecosystem is in a very different place from 2, 7 and 15 years ago. We have a ratified global climate agreement, setting a different, go-forward operating context. New players and new powerful initiatives involving billions of dollars, like the Breakthrough Energy Coalition and Mission Innovation, are being set up and will impact the next wave of our innovation theme. We all wish to hear the latest.

      We now have industries and boardrooms not only thinking about the future, but actually experiencing the beginnings of some very big transitions. We are identifying and inviting speakers across all our main-stage plenary time to provide viewpoints on the future of some such industries.

      We have more technologies than ever before, set to accelerate change on an exponential level – some coming from the consumer world, but others from fintech, biotech and communications. All could play a role in disrupting the old industrial order in the next 15 years. Many will be covered or exemplified by companies in our Forum tracks (see below).

      Technology is but one enabler. Innovation in finance and business models is a critical piece of the jigsaw. Studies suggest that to achieve zero carbon by 2050, we have a significant “innovation deficit” across the whole spectrum. So-called asset-light, digital innovation will not get us there. New capital and new financial models to scale physical change throughout the industrial landscape are required. We will explore such topics in different sessions across these 3 days.

      No one at the first Cleantech Forum in 2002 would have imagined how the next 15 years would have panned out, and the road to 2032 will equally be full of surprise. But the reasons to be optimistic that seismic, sustainable changes can now be achieved are more realistic in 2017 than in 2002. We have a platform off which to build. Come celebrate with us this significant milestone together – 15 years of charting the future, connecting the globe.

      Executive Summit: Next Generation Innovations for the Electricity Industry

      Channel your inner entrepreneur and come be a start-up for a day (well, an afternoon) and join a fun, interactive “Shark Tank” style session, exploring what the next generation of innovations in the utility sector might look like.

      New this year, we will be hosting an exclusive, limited-seats afternoon Executive Summit prior to the official start of the 15th Cleantech Forum San Francisco – in partnership with our parent company, Enovation Partners (EP).

      As the hors d’oeuvres for our limited seating Executive Summit – bringing together utility executives, investors, innovation companies, and other stakeholders in the power industry ecosystem – EP will provide some provocative ideas on the electricity industry’s future and scenarios of what different utility models might look like by 2032 (in deference to the Forum’s 15th (Crystal) anniversary).

      This will provide the context for the main dish of the afternoon, a team-based game to come up with “killer” start-up ideas for the power industry in the 2020s.

      Interested in shaping this afternoon Summit as a sponsoring partner? Contact us today for more information.

      Places can be requested by registered Forum attendees. Allocation of places will be made on a rolling basis to achieve a mix and variety of perspectives, with priority to be given to relevant corporations, investors, innovation companies, and other CTG and EP clients. Contact us at forums@cleantech.com if you are interested in attending.

      Welcome to the 15th Annual Cleantech Forum San Francisco! Meet our First Hall of Fame Inductees & Announcement of the 2017 Global Cleantech 100

      Join us as we make the first inductions into the Global Cleantech 100 Hall of Fame – companies who have appeared on the GCT100 seven times. To retain broad support among the market players so consistently through the roller coaster last few years for sustainable innovation is an achievement worth calling out and celebrating.

      For our opening evening, we will celebrate the first companies being inducted into the Hall of Fame, and hear from the CEOs on their journey, how they imagine the next 15 years playing out in some of the industries they work with, and their top tips for the next wave of CEOs building companies to improve our future industrial world.

      In addition, ahead of the opening reception, we will also be releasing the very latest edition of the Global Cleantech 100.

      Networking Break

      Following the first networking break, we will break into our two main tracks – Charting the Future: The Crystal Track and Connecting the Globe: The Innovation Track – running concurrently over the next 2 days.

      The Crystal Track will have us peering into our “crystal balls” during our Crystal anniversary, looking at the trends we should be paying attention to and what other ideas will play a part in the future. The Innovation Track will showcase leading innovation companies – ranging from the Global Cleantech 100 to other companies to watch.

      The two tracks will be complemented by an additional side-track – the Interaction Track. New this year, we are developing this track of tutorials, workshops, and roundtables for smaller groups (15-40 people) to dive into more specific or niche topics. This will allow our delegates to experience more interactive and discussion-based session time in a more intimate group setting.

      Impact Investing & Cleantech

      This session will seek to answer the question: how can “impact” be used to attract new types of investors to cleantech and clean energy infrastructure? We already see venture deal participation by impact-driven family offices, and new LP funds being started with impact mandates. Does the nature of the various flavors of impact investors also make them a good fit for early deployment capital and project finance? Are there specific terms that they request or require in connection with fund portfolio or project investments?

      LIMITED SEATING

      Water Executive Summit

      Water, as a precious and finite resource, is arguably a more intense problem than energy. And yet, despite evidence of much interest and activity around water innovation, investors await a clear, indisputable track record of successful returns, while the rest of us await a cohort of truly disruptive players and business models. As more than one corporation has put it to us, “where is the Airbnb of water?”

      New this year, we will be hosting an exclusive, limited-seats, five-hour Executive Summit during Cleantech Forum San Francisco. In this mini-summit, we will explore themes where water has intersect-points with other industries, resources, technologies, and customer pain-points. We believe these may be where the best opportunities exist for innovation to shine and have a big impact.

      You will find our preliminary Summit agenda here.  

      Interested in shaping this Summit as a sponsoring partner? Contact us today.

      Seats can be requested by registered Forum attendees, with a set number of places to be available for those who wish to attend only this part of our Forum. Contact us at forums@cleantech.com today.

      Feeding the World: FoodTech Innovations From Farm to Lab

      With the expected population in 2050 now estimated at 9.7 billion, it is more crucial than ever for the agriculture & food industry to be resource-efficient and sustainable. Innovations in the sector have ranged from using data analytics to monitor irrigation in the fields to creating plant-based meat alternatives with more realistic texture and taste to meat. What technologies are optimizing resources in the fields? Are plant-based proteins the future of food? We will seek to highlight some of the innovative companies in the agriculture & food sector.

      Creating Smart(er) Cities: Data-Driven Innovations for Growing Urban Populations

      According to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, more than half the world’s population lives in cities, and it is projected that 6 out of 10 people will be urban dwellers by 2030. With the rise of urban development, cities are having to manage the resources and needs of growing populations within their pre-existing infrastructure. Challenges remain from energy management, congested commutes, and aging infrastructure to waste management and air quality. One model for making cities more resource-efficient has been to turn to data. With the aim to better understand our cities, continued innovations of IoT, sensors, advanced analytics, mobile devices and other technologies have made applications to the smart city more readily available. Cities have also made more of their data open to the public, allowing private companies to tackle problems traditionally left in the hands of the local government. We will explore how cities are becoming smarter via innovative uses of data, and how these models and technologies will influence the city of the future.

      • • To introduce some “fresh faces” and new players to this innovation community, and hear different and thought-provoking perspectives
