Boston Cleantech PE and VC Investor Rob Day headlines BSAS Investing in Clean Energy breakfast June 9th

June 09, 2016 @ 8:00 AM

Clean energy is the future, but it is also very much the present. Some $329 billion was invested in clean energy in 2015 worldwide, even as fossil fuel prices fell. Wind and solar made up two-thirds of all new electric generating capacity added in the United States in 2015. The number of installed solar systems in the US hit 1 million early in 2016. Bloomberg New Energy Finance projected that $500 billion per year would be invested in new renewables for electricity generation worldwide between 2015 and 2025. In December 2015, 190 nations made commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Achieving those targets would increase that investment in new renewables to $800 billion per year, and more after 2025.

Experienced private equity and venture capital investor Rob Day has been front and center in Boston-area clean tech for fifteen years. Rob will provide a tour of the clean energy investing landscape to open the BSAS Investing in Clean Energy breakfast seminar on Thursday, June 9th.

The BSAS Investing in Clean Energy breakfast seminar is designed for investors – from high net worth individuals to large institutions – who see that this transformation in the global energy landscape is underway and want to understand how to participate. The seminar will provide investment professionals with an overview of the clean energy landscape and the investment opportunities available. Our subject matter experts will describe the opportunities currently available in the public markets and the private markets, and explain how innovations in technology and business models are shaping both current and future investment opportunities.
