MoFo Cleantech Investment Briefing
on August 19, 2008
Morrison & Foerster LLP hosted a Cleantech Investment Briefing on June 4, 2008 in San Francisco. In this seminar, a panel of cleantech investors, industry experts and legal practitioners briefed the audience on opportunities for cleantech investments, focusing on five of the fastest-growing areas - carbon sequestration, cellulosic and algae-based biofuels, solar (photovoltaic and concentrating solar power), water and energy efficiency vs. energy intelligence.
In this video segment recorded from the event, Michael Ward underlines the movement from corn-based ethanol to second-generation, cellulosic ethanol in biofuel investments, and explains the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Michael Ward is a patent attorney at Morrison Foerster, with a background in plant biochemistry and plant molecular biology. More about the speaker can be found here.
