Igniting Innovation: Bold Ideas for Achieving the Clean Trillion

It's a simple but daunting fact; to achieve the Clean Trillion goal, the world needs to quadruple annual new global investment in clean energy. Businesses, investors and policymakers are already working together to close this investment gap, but we are still not moving at the speed and scale necessary to avoid the worst effects of climate change. We need bold, game changing ideas to reshape our economy and we need them now. Join this session to hear from leaders who believe the future is now and are pioneering innovative financing and business models to rapidly scale clean energy solutions. Each speaker will answer one basic, but critical question "What untapped innovations will help us achieve the Clean Trillion?" We'll then ask the audience to chime in too.
