About the event
We’ve reached an exciting point in history. Clean energy like solar, wind and energy storage are the fastest growing sources of new power on the grid bar none. Cleantech broadly is staged for massive growth including: energy, transportation, industry, food, fuel and the built environment. There is a once in a lifetime transfer of wealth happening in the global economy and cleantech entrepreneurs, investors, and leaders stand to profit handsomely. But only if you scale up and rise to the challenge which is a massive growth opportunity. Of course the challenge is: can we do it quickly enough? Can we decarbonize the economy fast enough to stop climate chaos? Only time will tell but I’m here to tell you this challenge spells opportunity. As the Chinese proverb says… “crisis equals opportunity.” And whether or not you believe we are in a crisis, there is an opportunity. A 100 trillion dollar opportunity.
Yes, something like 100 trillion dollars will be invested in cleaning the grid, greening and upgrading our infrastructure, and creating a more resilient and sustainable built environment over the next 20-30 years. The transfer of wealth is like nothing our modern economy has witnessed.
WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND If you’re a growth company already in cleantech or staged to expand into cleantech then you will benefit from Mr. Montague’s thirty years of experience combining technology, sustainability and business. His insights, advice and wisdom will serve your strategies, product development and pursuit of new markets to experience breakthrough growth. If you’re an entrepreneur, investor or executive who has a company or portfolio of companies (or assets) staged for growth, then Mr. Montague offers you a unique purview into the challenges and opportunities of the clean economy. Society is on the verge of a massive shift into electrification of transportation, clean energy, smart grid technologies, carbon-free heavy industry, electrification of everything, and many more advancements that spell opportunity﹣but only if you are leaning in now and plotting your expansion into the fast growing clean economy. Companies staged for breakthrough growth or those poised to segue into cleantech (like oil and gas; commercial real estate; clean manufacturing) and business and civic leaders who want to be part of the cleantech revolution will realize that the future is now and there is no time like the present to cease this wealth transfer opportunity.
