Energy Carta cleantech summit and global competition

Non profit organisation Energy Carta has organised not only a summit this year, but also a competition to find an individual or team with the most innovative cleantech idea to represent Singapore in a global contest, in San Francisco.

Founded and run by young adults that is part of a global movement driven by a passion for clean technology, sustainable development and the environment, Energy Carta is the Singapore host for Global Cleantech Open Ideas Competition, the world’s largest clean technology business/idea competition.

The selected teams will present their ideas in our annual flagship event: Asian Youth Energy Summit 2010, a conference that aims to connect and inspire youths in Asia on the issue of energy and sustainable development. Past summits have attracted 500 young audience all over Asia and famous speakers like Grameen Bank Managing Director, Mr. Dipal C. Barua. It is a 1-day event on Friday, October 15.
