Founder of Advent Solar.
The Solar Energy sector is outpacing even many optimistic predictions. Last year venture capital firms invested more than $1.5 billion in clean-tech companies (source: VentureOne). In 2005, public solar companies achieved impressive volume, revenue, and profit growth. Clearly, the Solar Energy sector offers entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, and professionals exciting opportunities. This event was held in Albuquerque at the offices of Advent Solar.
