Morrison & Foerster is a sponsor of the Cleantech Forum XXVI “Taking Cleantech to Scale” in San Francisco February 24-26th, 2010 at The Palace Hotel. As a sponsor, we will present the following break-out panel discussion on Thursday, February 25 from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.:
China/U.S. Cross-Border Investment in Cleantech
China’s ambitious renewable energy goals, national incentive programs, and aggressive fuel economy standards will enable the growth of a domestic Cleantech industry that some have predicted could reach $1 trillion, or 15% of China’s GDP, by 2013. At the same time, the U.S. is increasing its focus on retrofitting existing infrastructure for efficiency. This panel will discuss differences in Cleantech investment priorities between the U.S. and China, their implications and key issues for cross-border Cleantech deals between the U.S. and China.
