VERGE Conference: The Platform for Accelerating the Clean Economy
Fast-changing technologies and growing global risks are forcing companies and cities to become more adaptive, and business models to evolve and diversify. It’s a challenging time, but it’s also a time of unprecedented opportunity to create a clean economy that increases economic and community resilience — equitably and inclusively.
To unlock this $13.5 trillion opportunity, the world needs a platform to convene a diverse and influential audience — including leaders from companies and utilities, city and regional governments, policymakers, NGOs, solution providers and startups — and to address systemic challenges by elevating scalable, cross-cutting solutions at the intersection of technology and sustainability.
The VERGE 19 conference and expo is the platform for accelerating the clean economy. VERGE 19 offers attendees a unique mix of content, solutions and networking opportunities.
It will be held October 22-24 at the Convention Center in Oakland, California.
This year’s conference and expo includes four concurrent conferences — VERGE Carbon, VERGE Circular, VERGE Energy and VERGE Transport — dozens of inspirational plenary sessions, the solutions-focused Interconnect Expo, a 100% renewably powered microgrid, unique special programs and unparalleled networking opportunities.
VERGE Carbon – Creating value from carbon pollution by sequestering it and using it to create innovative products, materials and services
VERGE Circular – Leveraging technologies and systems necessary to shift from a linear to circular economy
VERGE Energy – Decarbonizing global energy systems at both the grid and distributed scales
VERGE Transport – Accelerating zero-emissions transportation and sustainable, livable cities
