GreenBeat 2010

SSE Labs of Stanford University and VentureBeat are proud to host GreenBeat 2010 — the year’s seminal conference on the smart grid — at Stanford University on November 3rd & 4th 2010. 

This year’s conference will explore the evolution of the grid and how the new “Super Grid” is creating huge opportunities in autos, storage and renewables.

GreenBeat 2010 will bring together over 400 entrepreneurs, utility executives, technology executives, policymakers, investors, and press for provocative discussion, debate and power networking. In 2009, the inaugural GreenBeat Conference assembled a powerful mix of those leading the world’s Smart Grid initiatives, including former Vice President and Noble Prize winner Al Gore,  Kleiner Perkins’ John Doerr, Khosla Venture’s Vinod Khosla, and Cisco’s Laura Ipsen, to name a few.

The 2010 program will feature a similar mix of those leading the next generation of green developments in this dynamic market and focus on the hottest trends that are charging the Super Grid. GreenBeat 2010 will also feature the second annual Innovation Competition. Companies with the freshest ideas and most promising business models involving smart grid technologies will have a chance to present live at the event. On top of that, DEMO, the leading launch platform for emerging technologies, and strategic partner of GreenBeat 2010, will be offering winners of the Innovation Competition the opportunity to launch their products at DEMO in 2011.

    Meet cleantech’s dreamers and doers at GreenBeat 2010

    Why is VentureBeat putting on GreenBeat 2010? The energy revolution depends on two disparate groups. Call the first the pipe dreamers: entrepreneurs, politicians, and pundits. They have great ideas. Then there are the powermongers — the folks who quite literally have the juice, the utilities generating and distributing energy today and tomorrow, who have to worry about billions of dollar of infrastructure.

    It’s time to bring the pipe dreamers and the powermongers together in the same room. Utilities have a lot of costs keeping America well-lit, warm or cool, and safe. (Not to mention connected: Who do you think powers all those Internet data centers?) Meanwhile, investors need help finding where they can seize opportunities. GreenBeat 2010, VentureBeat’s seminal green conference, is where the industry can talk both big dreams and balance sheets.

    That’s the spirit behind our opening keynote at GreenBeat. We’re stoked that PG&E is sending its top smart-grid decisionmaker, Kevin Dasso. He’ll participate in a fireside chat with VantagePoint’s Alan Salzman, the savvy green investor whose venture-capital fund is fueling some of the most influential cleantech startups.

    And the event comes right after next week’s election. In California, the heart of the cleantech revolution, voters are debating Proposition 23, which would suspend climate-change regulations and could upset the playing field for clean energy sources.

    The super grid. Coming soon to a power outlet near you

    There is one technology which is truly essential and ubiquitous in our world, it’s electricity. Yet few of us have any idea how the power grid works. That’s going to have to change. Understanding the grid of today is the key to building the grid of tomorrow, a theme which VentureBeat will explore next week at its GreenBeat 2010 conference at Stanford University. The theme: “Charging the Super Grid.”

    The current grid is a complex and aging infrastructure based on 19th-century technology. But lately, the energy sector has been focused on building what some have called a “smart grid” — using information technology to make the existing power infrastructure more efficient and easily monitored. That market itself was worth $21 billion last year and is poised to double to $42 billion by 2014.

    But there’s an even larger opportunity; what we’re calling the “super grid.” It’s a bionic upgrade to power generation and distribution that will let our energy network diagnose and heal itself, dynamically integrate renewable energy and local power sources, and automatically lower electricity demand. The source of those superpowers is still information technology — only it is being pushed forward by even more disruptive technology.

    We first defined the super grid agenda last year, when we threw our first GreenBeat event. There we talked about the revolution the super grid is driving: As more people get solar roofs on their homes, they’ll be able to put energy back onto the grid themselves, creating a two-way grid architecture. And the smart meter — networked, computerized meters installed in consumers’ homes and businesses — may be the most visible face of the super grid. Many more technologies and companies are involved, however. Read more at Ventue Beat
