Cleantech Forum Europe

Register Now! 

Date: May 16 - 18, 2017
Location: Helsinki, Finland

Cleantech today is all about combinations. Impactful and disruptive innovations of all types happen at the ‘intersects’ – as we have seen happen with bio and information technologies, and as with mobile devices and the internet.

Nothing could feel truer today for clean technologies – where the energy and resource-intensive industries intersect with IT, data, communications, finance, biotech, AI, and robotics. The innovations in both technology and business models are disrupting traditional boundaries between previously silo-ed industries. The IT industry is most obviously converging with the utility world, but IT innovation is also starting to change agriculture, waste, water, and construction – just to name a few very old and traditional industries. Entrepreneurs are finding innovative combinations to generate new types of companies, with solar and batteries being the most obvious ‘combination.’ Companies are also working together in new ways, forming partnerships with those that only 5 years ago would have seemed unlikely bedfellows.

And global ideas and trends are also wreaking havoc, where powerful streams meet. For example, the forces of democratization and personalization are starting to change the worlds of energy and finance.

At Cleantech Forum Europe 2016, we will be focusing on this idea of the convergence of cleantech innovations and industries. It is apropos that our 2016 host city is Lyon, France – a historic city built and grown over a period of 2000 years at the point where two rivers (the Rhône and the Saône) meet – La Confluence. Today, the city has one of the most progressive agendas when it comes to being a ‘smart city.’

All these ideas will play through our Forum as we examine the very latest in the ever-changing theme of cleantech, and as we get a glimpse of the future.
