-- April 29th San Francisco

From the entrepreneurs that make up the backbone of America's innovation economy to the leaders of forward-thinking U.S. utilities to the investors that funded the Internet revolution, our speakers at Green:Net 2010 will be focused on one thing: how the Internet and IT can be leveraged to save the planet. At the same time, attendees will learn how to create huge new technology markets and spearhead the green economy.  

We are proud to welcome 2010 California Gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown and leading technology and Greentech investor Vinod Khosla as speakers to Green:Net 2010.  Join them on April 29th in San Francisco.
What is Green:Net?

Green:Net is where green and IT meet. While alternative energy gets a lot of attention at most green conferences, only the The GigaOM Network’s Green:Net offers a specific point of view on how the computing and Internet technologies will provide the tools needed to fight climate change. Don't miss the green conference for the Internet industry. 

To preserve our future, we have to reduce emissions and energy in the most efficient way possible. To that end, we need to measure, make use of and share an unprecedented amount of data -- tasks for which the computers and networks that form the global fabric of the Internet and communication networks are ideally suited. Following a sold-out first-year event, we're proud to once again be gathering together the brightest minds, ideas and entrepreneurs for Green:Net 2010. There, attendees will find out what new opportunities -- from web sites and smart networked vehicles to green data centers and smart energy grids -- are being created by the tech elite.

Green:Net 2010 speakers include:

  • Jerry Brown, California Attorney General and Gubernatorial Candidate

  • Vinod Khosla, Founder, Khosla Ventures

  • Bill Gross, CEO and Founder of Idealab

  • Steve Jurvetson, Managing Director at Draper Fisher Jurvetson

  • Bill Weihl, Google’s Green Energy Czar

  • Jason Few, President of Reliant Energy

  • Dian Grueneich, Commissioner for the California Public Utilities Commission

  • Laura Ipsen, SVP and GM, Smart Grid, Cisco

  • Eric Dresselhuys, EVP, Silver Spring Networks

Among the topics that will be covered:

  • The New Networked Car - Is the next major mobile technology platform for green applications your car?

  • Carbon Policy Is Coming, and Software Is Gonna Save You - Will we see the emergence of new software giants in this space?

  • How the Internet Giants Are Moving Into Energy - Google and Microsoft have slowly moved into offering energy services -- what's the attraction and what are their plans?
