MoFo Cleantech Investment Briefing
on August 21, 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.
There is no substitute for water, the demand for it is insatiable, and yet economically-speaking there has been no pricing signal for this precious and irreplaceable natural resource. In this video segment recorded from the event, Chris Carr speaks to this dilemma and talks about opportunities along the "Water - Energy Nexus", The panel also answers the audience question about water desalination, decentralization and other water-related trends.
