By tapping into robust social media, a new internet of things, and the ever expanding portfolio of open data, cleanweb has become a seemingly surefire way to cost-effectively tackle sustainability and scale current cleantech solutions. Is it a platform that uses satellites to easily assess a solar project, a Facebook app that tracks and gamifies energy use, or a site that brings together all the building stakeholders? The cleanweb is all of these things, and with 18% of all cleantech deals since 2009 including cleanweb, it might provide an answer for cleantech’s overall downturn in global investing.
For the next Clean Energy Connections, we discuss the golden boy of cleantech and topic du jour, “Cleanweb.” With New York a firm leader in tech, it seems like a natural place for cleanweb to thrive. Join us as we explore the questions that surround cleanweb, and what companies can do to capture its momentum.
The panel discussion is a featured event of Solar One and NYC ACRE at NYU-Poly’s cleantech panel discussion series, Clean Energy Connections.
