Announcing Fortune’s Brainstorm E Conference in May in Carlsbad! by Katie Fehrenbacher @FortuneMagazine March 22, 2016, 7:37 AM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Linkedin Share icons This year is a time of transition for how business thinks about energy and sustainability, how energy companies think about technology and how investors are looking at a world with a changing climate. To discuss this landscape in flux—from what happens after Paris, to China’s clean energy boom, to what’s next for cleantech innovation—Fortune is thrilled to announce our ninth annual Brainstorm E 2016 conference, which is focused on the intersection of energy, technology and sustainability (formerly called Fortune Brainstorm Green). We’re welcoming some of the biggest names in energy and technology back to California in sunny Carlsbad on May 16 and 17th. These fine folks include Bill Ford, Executive Chairman of Ford Motor Company, Hugh Grant, Chairman and CEO of Monsanto, Nancy Pfund, Founding Managing Partner of DBL Partners, Steven Chu, former U.S. Energy Secretary, Anthony Earley, CEO of PG&E, George Whitesides, CEO of Virgin Galactic, Dan Doctoroff, CEO of Sidewalk Labs, David Crane, former CEO of NRG Energy, Shirley Ann Jackson, former Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and many more. WATCH: Meet the winner of Fortune Brainstorm E’s Cool Companies Competition: We’ll dig into topics like the future of batteries, how to design smart cities, the coming water revolution, the next-generation of nuclear technology, and Silicon Valley vs the auto industry. We’ll also bring in experts to tackle energy and climate policy both in the U.S. and on a global scale that will shape how world leaders will meet (or won’t) international climate change goals. And don’t miss the kick-off dinner on the night of the 16th, where guests will be able to relax, connect, listen to some great music and be inspired by some great speakers. Our Fortune Brainstorm E event is invite-only, but you can register here and tell us why you want, need and would absolutely love to be there. Join us at Fortune’s Brainstorm E 2016 conference and don’t miss out on the most inspiring event in the intersection of energy, tech and sustainability.
