Michael Krueger, Managing Director of Kirchner Private capital Group & Kristen York, Partner Sustainametrics based in Truckee, will discuss how businesses, investors and consumers are looking beyond CleanTech to the emerging Energy Efficiency sector. "Energy efficiency a sub-category of CleanTech is focused on improving energy management throughout the energy supply/demand chain. As the second phase of CleanTech begins to emerge, investors and leading industry players are looking at the energy efficiency sector as a viable alternative to the traditional capital-intensive CleanTech companies in the market today. Much like its IT counterparts’ energy efficiency solutions provide higher gross margins, shorter time to market and significantly less capital investment." Together they will enlighten us to this evolving sector, how it can positively impact you and your business strategy. Together Krueger & York bring a fresh dimension to ‘Energy Efficiency’ conversation hoping to inspire us at the local level.

The meeting is sponsored by world-class creative and technical services company New Leaders. Dinner will be $5.
