CleanTech Alliance is announcing the sixth annual 2019 CleanTech Innovation Showcase at Bell Harbor International Conference Center in Seattle on June 24—this year with participation from outside North America. For the first time ever, in partnership with the Western Interstate Energy Board (WIEB), the Showcase will feature a second day innovation workshop dedicated to advancing cooperative energy projects across the west and with the federal government. The Showcase - will be especially important this year in light of proposed legislation to support Washington state’s transition to carbon-neutral energy by 2030 and carbon-free energy by 2045. The Showcase helps link policy, applied and basic research, and technology development to achieve a cleaner economy and environment locally and globally.
The Cascadia CleanTech Accelerator, powered by VertueLab and CleanTech Alliance, today announced that the Toyota Mobility Foundation has signed on to be the $25,000 lead sponsor of the accelerator’s 2019 program. Applications for the 2019 cohort are open now.
Dr. Kevin Murphy will focus his presentation on the role of crop diversity as a key tenet of sustainable agriculture, and how the power of plant breeding can be harnessed to address environmental issues such as soil erosion, water quality, and poor air quality.
