MoFo Cleantech Investment Briefing
on August 20, 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.
Solar has been the "Poster Child" of green technology. In this video segment recorded from the event, Marianne Wu describes the state of the solar market, and discusses each of the four specific areas of solar investments.
