Top Cleantech Events 2012

Summary: Hundreds of Cleantech Events happen year-round all over the world. With events covering a wide range of topics, to conferences covering one specific cleantech topic, these events are extremely beneficial to anyone looking to succeed in the growing world of Clean Technology.

Cleantech has begun taking the world by storm.  This trending topic is being seen across the globe through a number of new exciting initiatives as well as a growing portion of venture money going to fund new Cleantech startups and projects.  With the world of clean technology and innovation continually growing, the need for information about this industry is growing as well.

The world of clean technology can be divided into many different areas.  The term “clean technology” encompasses many different areas, ranging from different forms of renewable energy, such as solar, wind, hydro, and thermal, to topics on water management and waste pollution.

Some top cleantech events for 2012 are ones hosted by Cleantech Group.  Cleantech Group puts on events such as the Cleantech Forum San Francisco, which focuses on ­­­­­clean technology as a broad subject.  Another frontrunner in cleantech events is Greentech Media.  Their more specialized Solar Summit 2012 event to be held in Phoenix, Arizona in May will focus solely on solar energy.

These events are valuable learning tools, as well as opportunities for networking with top industry professionals and investors.  Through these events, connections can be made and ideas can be shared.  One problem facing the global cleantech community is the ability to simply find out about upcoming events, and where events specializing in your desired field are being held.

It is through companies like Skipso that this problem is being solved.  Skipso’s website offers a continually growing database of the top global Cleantech events (chekc out the top 100 Cleantech events for 2012). This website allows people to search for events by geographic area, as well as their desired topic or type of event.


Skipso is helping to open more doors to cleantech enthusiasts worldwide.  Through their site, people can explore vast opportunities and in doing so, learn a great deal from others who share their drive and enthusiasm for the cleantech revolution.

  1. I think this is a very good initiative, but how is the database filled up? I searched for Pollutec in France, ecosummit in Germany, two important events in Europe, but I couldn’t find them.

  2. Thibault,

    Thanks for your comment. The database is by no means complete, although we update this daily and we will add the two events you reported right now!

    We also have a user generated section where event organisers or anyone from the community can directly create a profile page for an upcoming event.
