Conferences past and future

In January I had the honor to present some ongoing research at the 2015 China Smart Energy Summit, at the invitation of the Energy Foundation. My presentation was cleverly called “Smart Energy in China.” It was a tremendously interesting day and there was a strong feeling of possibility in the overflow crowd about meaningful changes in China’s energy landscape.

On March 31 I will be presenting some of the same material, with a few added items on distributed PV generation, at the Intersolar Conference in Beijing.

If any readers are interested in the substance of the presentation please let me know – or watch this space, as publication should be in the next month or so.

“Smart Cities: Asia Pacific” published by Navigant Research

The smart city research report I wrote, “Smart Cities: Asia Pacific,” has been published by Navigant Research, a major US greentech research firm.

It’s a full research report, with an analysis of smart city drivers and challenges across the Asia Pacific region, a summary of technology issues, a detailed comparison of the policy and market situation in each of six sub-regions, a short profile of the major international firms in the market, and a series of 10 year market size projections by sector and sub-region.
