Top White House Advisor on Science and Technology to Keynote Summit in Washington, D.C.
The Cleantechnology and Sustainable Industries (CSI Summit) will be held in the nation’s capital at the Renaissance Washington, D.C. hotel October 30-31, 2007.
Mr. John Marburger III, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy will be the keynote speaker for CSI Cleantech Fall Summit. “We are proud to have Mr. Marburger, the top advisor to the White House on science and technology, as our keynote speaker,” said Patti Glaza, Executive Director of CTSI.
The CSI Cleantech Fall Summit is an exclusive two-day conference that will bring together top companies and government officials to discuss the latest research and business developments occurring in clean technology and sustainable industries, including transportation, corporate sustainable practices, energy efficiency, alternative/renewable energies, traditional power, and more.
The Summit will also feature an interactive audience discussion which will focus on creating legislation for a National Clean & Sustainable Technology Initiative (NCSTI), a federally funded R&D program to coordinate multi-agency efforts in science, engineering, and technology related to clean technology and sustainable business innovation. “The Summit is the first step in the effort to launch the National Clean & Sustainable Technology Initiative (NCTI),” noted Ms. Glaza. “This is an event where we can begin to develop a coordinated national roadmap to organize funding and research and development efforts in an efficient manner.”
Additional speakers for the CSI Summit include: Shell Global Solutions, General Electric, US Department of Energy-Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, NIST, Siemens Corporation, Whole Foods Market, Jackson Walker LLP, Halliburton Energy, Omron Silicon Valley, Austin Energy, Sandia National Laboratories, and many more.
The CSI Summit is being co-produced by the CleanTechnology and Sustainable Industries Organization (CTSI), the Cleantechnology and Sustainable Industries Events organization (CSI Events), the NSTI, and TechConnect. The mission of the newly established (CTSI) is to advance the commercialization and global adoption of clean technologies and sustainable industry practices through a community of industry, academic, and government leaders committed to a safer, cleaner and more productive world.
