Ivestors all around the globe are putting their money into projects and start-ups that are likely to turn a profit and have a positive impact on the planet as well. How do we pick the right projects and can we invest as individuals as well?
Eric Appleton, Energy Systems Catapult: Decarbonising Heat. With around 50% of global energy used in Heating and Cooling, what new business models could accelerate the transition to lower carbon solutions?
Erki Ani, Cleantech forEST: Transition to cleaner sources of energy is inevitable and by creating new opportunities for entrepreneurs and startups, the supporting infrastructure plays an important role. Can cleantech and energy startups tackle the global resource and energy scarcity problems on their own?

SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS: How businesses use, produce or buy energy sustainably
Skoda Auto wants to produce electric vehicles only in their Czech factory. Skanska builds our new homes and offices, so they produce their own energy and use as little resources as possible. And Vodafone has built first green mobile network. Why does it make sense for both small business and corporations to use power green?
Najada Begalla & Adriana Dergam, Vodafone: Rising energy demand + decreasing impact on planet = a challenging equation to Telco.
Eva Neudertová, Skanska: There is not one magic trick to using energy sustainably. How do we show people that the real charm lies in little things we do every day?
Aron Lazarchick, Škoda Auto: A sustainably charged future: could electric cars help our overheated grid? Is a completely-electric transportation infrastructure actually desirable? What about e-waste, are recycled batteries just a dream or a real possibility?

16:00 – 17:45
URBAN LIVING ON THE PLANET: How modern energy saves our cities
Our cities are heating up and one of the ways to cool them down is to hook them up to green power. If we share cars and flats, we could also share our local energy. What is already being done and what is the effect?
Camille Orthlieb & Robin Kirschke, Ittenbrechbühl: How to build the most sustainable building on the planet. Solar panel, heat pumps, recycled materials. What can we find in the Olympic House?
Martin Barry, reSITE: We make cities liveable and loveable. Can clean energy and green technologies make them even nicer?
