NREL's Industry Growth Forum is the premiere clean energy investment forum not only because of the caliber of investors and entrepreneurial companies it attracts, but also due to its unique format and window on the energy future. Its rich "educational content" distinguishes NREL's Growth Forums and leaves all participants - including entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and corporate investors - with a deeper understanding of the evolving energy market and what a business must do to thrive. Our format provides intensive feedback to competitively selected entrepreneurs from a panel of investors and industry experts. This helps entrepreneurs refine their business case by developing their understanding of financial industry requirements. Presenters from Forums 15-19 have raised more than $1.2 billion in financing due in large part to presenting at one or more of the forums.

Building upon the success of previous Forums, we anticipate over 500+ professionals, including start-up companies, venture capitalists, investment bankers, energy executives, and government officials to attend this three-day event. Attendees at the 20th Forum included energy leaders such as Arizona Public Service, Xcel Energy, NASDAQ, DTE Energy, along with energy financiers such as Altira Group, Blue Hill Partners, Nth Power, RockPort Capital Partners, Sevin Rosen Funds, NPG Energy Technology Partners, Braemar Energy Ventures, HellerEhrman, Bridge Bank, First Albany Technology Ventures, Battelle Ventures, Milbank, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati, Hamilton Clark, Cowen and Company, and Thomas Weisel Partners.

The Forum will feature 35 clean energy companies presenting their business plans and growth strategies featuring technologies such as fuel cells, hydrogen, power quality, wind, energy efficiency, photovoltaics, biofuels, battery and storage technologies. A panel of approximately 15 experts in industry and finance provide direct feedback and guidance to the firm's management team.
