This is what the Carbon War Room, who is hosting the event has to say:
The Carbon War Room is passionate about eliminating market failures and moving capital to entrepreneurs in clean technology. Our active projects have all been started through solutions suggested at previous Creating Climate Wealth Summits, and all our future ones will start here.
Over the last 12 months, we have been putting the solutions and outputs from last year's CCW North America Summit to work. In September we launched the PACE Commercial Consortium, a solution recommended in the energy efficiency track, which included Barclays Capital, Lockheed Martin, Energi, and Ygrene. The Consortium has already unlocked $650 million of private capital for energy efficiency retrofits in Sacramento, California and Miami-Dade County, Florida. This year we hope to accelerate these efforts as well as facilitate new consortia in a bid to reach our $1.5 billion target of deployed private capital in energy efficiency retrofits by the 2012 London Olympics.
December saw the launch of RenewableJetFuels.org, the world's first online market information service analyzing the leading companies set to supply commercial scale renewable fuel for aviation. Launched by the Carbon War Room and powered by Elsevier Biofuel TechSelectTM beta, this new information solution also came directly out of last year's Washington event. We are currently promoting the tool to investors, engineers, operators, and fuel buyers so that they can use this data to compare suppliers on technical performance, economic viability, and carbon footprint.
At this year's Summit, we are excited to continue our work in energy efficiency and aviation as well as offer five new working tracks to identify specific pathways to accelerating deployment of renewable energy and clean-tech solutions. Of the emerging ideas this year, we at Carbon War Room are genuinely excited. We intend to commit budget for a project manager to take the strongest idea from one of these tracks and explore its potential. We want one of these tracks to be the next operation - whether it's a partnership around a new plan or a completely new idea, we're ready to move. Either way, Creating Climate Wealth is where it all starts for us with our partners.
