Tuesday, June 29, 2010 | 5:30 PM to 7:00 PMSolar, wind and nuclear may make more headlines, but increasing the efficiency of the US’s energy use in buildings could be the most dramatic, immediate opportunity to decrease reliance on foreign oil and dirty fossil fuels. Who are the key players in this space? What are the obstacles to taking products and companies to scale? How can consumers, policy makers and investors accurately evaluate returns on their investments in efficiency?
Please join the Museum of American Finance and the Sierra Club for a lively discussion with leaders in the field. Presentation will be followed by reception.
