Yesterday we hosted our first ever Clean Technology Showcase. More than twenty companies, from Microsoft to General Electric to Tendril, exhibited their clean energy solutions for the future. These applications will harness the smart grid, empowering consumers to save money and energy by using cutting edge tools and appliances. Speakers at the event included Chairman Genachowski, FERC Chairman Jon Wellinghoff, and Secretary of Energy Steven Chu. If you were unable to join us at the showcase, watch our video below to see some highlights.
