Advancing Clean & Renewable Energy Technology & Deployment

EICE, Entrepreneurs In Clean Energy, is a Group for Engineers, Scientists & Innovators in Clean Energy. The objective of this MeetUp is to meet Mid-Atlantic region's CleanTech companies and to attract additional Clean Energy Entrepreneurs who want to network with likeminded people. This will be an opportunity to meet peers, learn & collaborate with what is going on in Clean Energy field, and possibly partner with likeminded to develop & propose INTEGRATED Multi-Disciplinary & Multi-Industry solutions for the planet.

The objective of the Group is to build a Global network of Clean Energy Innovators who will collaborate to develop & offer INTEGRATED Multi-Disciplinary & Multi-Industry Solutions that result in higher efficiencies, lower costs & disruptive technologies that make it easy & economical for consumers to migrate to clean energy. We apply systemic thinking and inter-disciplinary collaboration as foundations to spark Innovations and solve Technical problems to accelerate Clean & Renewable Energy deployment & growth.

We are focused on:

• Attracting Technical Leaders & Innovators (current and aspiring) who are passionate about thinking, collaborating on and seeking solutions to energy, environmental & sustainability challenges.

• Utilizing systemic thinking and inter-disciplinary collaboration as foundations to spark Innovations and solve Technical problems to accelerate Clean & Renewable Energy deployment & growth.

• Collaborate, create & offer seamless, completely INTEGRATED Multi-Disciplinary & Multi-Industry based, sensible Clean & Renewable Energy Solutions to significantly disrupt & compete with legacy energy systems.

If you are seriously concerned about global warming and you want to be involved in creating practical solutions, this meeting may be your first step towards joining forces with likeminded and with possibly creating new business ventures. Together, our objective is to create opportunities for CleanTech Entrepreneurs to build a sustainable global energy environment.

We will get to know each other better and strengthen our position in the marketplace as a united front represented by the various Clean & Renewable Energy industries. We will focus on: Attracting Technical Leaders & Innovators (current and aspiring) who are passionate about thinking, collaborating on and seeking solutions to energy, environmental, and sustainability challenges. Utilizing systemic thinking and inter-disciplinary collaboration as foundations to spark Innovations & solve Technical problems to accelerate Clean & Renewable Energy deployment & growth. Cynosure: Identify & define the fundamental hurdles that are in the way of Clean Energy deployment & growth. Attendees should deeply think about the Weaknesses & Hurdles in current Technology, Methodologies & Standards within the Clean Tech industry. Identify Technologies & Solutions that eliminate and/or mitigate these weaknesses & hurdles. Find ways to Spark Innovations that increase our competiveness in the marketplace. Action: Starting the conversation to identify & define key technologies & solutions needed to eliminate and/or mitigate our weaknesses & hurdles. Define the Problems Create the Solutions Identifying the Problems: What are the Technical weaknesses, challenges & roadblocks? What are the Implementation & Integration weaknesses, challenges & roadblocks? What are the systemic hurdles/challenges we encounter on a regular basis? What are the combined challenges standing in the way of Clean Energy growth? How can we speed up Clean Energy acceptance, investments & growth? What will spark Innovation and make us more competitive against legacy systems? Discuss your challenges > Identifying the Solutions: the Goal is to explore innovations, methods & standards across and between the different industries & disciplines with Creative Collaboration to aggressively accelerate the current pace of Clean & Renewable Energy innovation, deployment & growth: Explore how New Technologies & Innovations along with innovations in methodologies, technical standards, manufacturing standards, installation standards & policy standards that can be implemented to bypass our hurdles to faster Clean Energy deployment & growth.

The more unified we are, the easier it is get cooperation from major players to enact change that is conducive to our growth. Discuss Your solutions > Workshops & Follow-up Events are held on the LAST Thursday of every month. Thoughts are needed on, Creative Collaboration among ALL within the Clean & Renewable Energy sector along with superior technical innovations & logical standards that allow us to compete more effectively against legacy energy solutions to leapfrog our growth. Industry Representation: The following are the segments & the speakers that represent these segments. We are looking for Speakers/Leaders/Participants with Technical/Engineer/Scientific mindsets. CTO types make more sense than CEO types. Leadership, Research, Communications, Policies & Analysis - Janine Finnell Wind - AWEA & DWEA - Mike Bergey Hydro & Kinetic - Verdant Power - Trey Taylor Solar - MDV- SEIA - Dale Davis or Dana Sleeper Storage & Intelligent Controls - Tesla PowerWALL - Elon Musk Hardware - Communications - IoT - QUALCOMM - Matthew S. Grob Hardware - Sensors - IoT - Intel - Ravi Iyer Software - Cloud - IoT - GE Predix - Harel Kodesh Innovations - Standards & Collaborations - ENDS - Kabir Government - Assistance & Policy - MD - Senator Ben Cardin Collaboration -Valley of Death - BEC - Bill Gates Startup & Incubators - Clean Tech Open - Jordan Engel Suggestions for speaker/participant candidates are welcome. Proposed Workgroups & Collaboration Strategy: The Clean Tech Industry should create multiple, 7-15 person workgroups or "Regional Groups" within a region. A good example of a region is DC, VA & MD. Each Regional Group or RG will be composed of at least one representative from each Clean Tech segment such as Hydro, Wind, Storage, etc., as well as a particular discipline such as Material-Sciences Scientist, AI Software Engineer, etc., (a good, diverse mix within each RG). Each RG will also elect a 2-3 person "Leader Team" or LT to represent their RG. The RGs will, at first, collaborate & tackle specific subject matters such as Harvestor Innovation, Standards, etc., and/or IoT Integration, Standards, etc. within their group. Then they will work with other local RGs to create consensus & proposals. The Leader Teams or LTs will work with other region's LTs to create 7-15 person Multi-Regional Groups or MRG, again composed of at least one representative from each Clean Tech segment such as Hydro, Wind, Storage, etc., as well as a particular discipline such as Material-Sciences Scientist, AI Software Engineer, etc., (a good, diverse mix within each MRG). These MRGs and their LTs will be the foundation of a national, and eventually a global, network of Clean Tech Scientists, Engineers & Innovators to collaborate towards solving our Clean Tech hurdles. The approach is to utilize systemic thinking and inter-disciplinary & inter-industry collaboration as foundations to spark Innovations & solve Technical problems to accelerate Clean & Renewable Energy deployment & growth.
