How can Austin support clean energy research and development, biofuels and energy storage? Can our highly educated workforce, globally respected research institutions, top-tier infrastructure and winning entrepreneurial spirit make a difference?

Austin is one of the nation’s leaders in clean energy and cleantech innovation. This industry contributes $2.5 Billion to the regional economy and employees 20,000 individuals. The Clean Energy Incubator at the Austin Technology Incubator, founded in 2001, is the oldest incubator of its kind and was recently selected as one of three “best practices” incubators in the country by the DOE. Mitch Jacobson (ATI) and Kathleen Baireuther (ATI, CleanTX) will discuss the role of the incubator in cataylzing the cleantech industry in Austin, as well as a number of community initiatives that have played a critical role in building a vibrant industry and a collaborative community around innovation in this space. The discussion will highlight success stories from the incubator, key community initiatives and events, and a vision for how Austin’s strength in this sector positions it to lead the country in new and emerging industries, such as water technology, transportation and mobility, and waste/re-use.
