I'm looking forward to attending tomorrow's Sustainable Energy Expo in Washington, D.C. The morning will be kicked off by presentations from members of Congress, most notably renewable energy pioneer Sen. Mark Udall from Colorado.
The 12th annual expo is being put on by the Sustainable Energy Coalition (SEC), a membership organization for renewable energy businesses and organizations, in conjunction with the U.S. Senate Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Caucuses.
The Expo will be featuring the latest advances in both renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. I'm copying in the impressive list of attending organizations which includes the U.S EPA (Energy Star), most all of the renewable energy trade associations, and an interesting organization called 25 x '25, which was started by a group of ranchers, foresters and farmers who set the lofty goal of providing 25% of the U.S. energy demand by 2025 by implementing solar, wind and other renewable energy projects on their lands.

I'm working on a compendium of cleantech elevator pitches, so I will be bringing my video camera to document as many as possible. So Watch for those in the nest few days.
