Humans have always looked to nature for inspiration in industry and progress. By observing nature, we have developed better machines, materials and buildings to improve our world. Only recently, however, have we begun to explore the potential of observing nature to advance clean-energy technology. Entrepreneurs, investors and biomimetic designers will discuss how companies are utilizing biomimicry to design, build and operate innovative cleantech technologies. Join us as experts explore the benefits and challenges of this new collaborative model and dive into the best strategies for success. A networking reception will follow the discussion and audience Q&A.
This event is part of the Clean Energy Connections series presented by Solar One and NYC ACRE. General admission is $25 and student admission is $10 with a valid ID. Register at: https://co.clickandpledge.com/advanced/default.aspx?wid=40437
