Last month, a delegation of E2 members traveled to Washington to attend the 2012 ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit, which convened key players from across the energy ecosystem - researchers, entrepreneurs, investors, corporate executives, and government officials - to share ideas for developing and deploying the next generation of clean energy technologies.
This year's event featured Bill Gates, Founder and Chairman of Microsoft; Fred Smith, Chairman, President and CEO of FedEx; and Lee Scott, former CEO of Wal-Mart; as well as Secretary Chu and Director Majumdar as distinguished keynote speakers
E2 was a media sponsor for this event.
While at ARPA-E, E2 also arranged for meetings with Richard Kauffman, Special Advisor to Energy Secretary Chu, and Senator Christopher Coons of Delaware, to discuss the the current business climate for clean energy. Discussion topics included Clean Energy Standards, the status of expiring incentives, financing & tax options for accelerating deployment of clean energy, and business activity in clean energy.
