SPEAKERS + PANELS
The Summit will include keynote addresses by clean tech industry leaders and key government officials. In addition, the
Summit will feature more than a dozen panel discussions with industry, governmental, and academic leaders. These panels
will consist of big-picture trends as well as in-depth explorations of factors influencing the growth of the clean tech sector.
One of the unique aspects of the Summit is the substantial student participation from UNC and other universities across
North Carolina. For some students the Summit serves as an introduction to clean tech and its potential as an economic
driver in our region. For other students the event serves as a springboard to internships and job opportunities. As in past
years, the Summit will provide sessions specifically targeted to student attendees and potential employers. More Information
