Clean Technology Bigger Than Internet? At least Bill Joy, thinks so.
A global response to climate change will spur a business revolution bigger than the internet, said co-founder of Sun Microsystems Bill Joy.
“Solar cells are semiconductors, heat to electricity is semiconductors, software to manage systems comes out of Silicon Valley,” said Joy, who is now a partner at venture capital investors Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB).
A global race is on to be first to commercialize breakthrough technologies which could make deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions.
You can already see some activity in this space like California Clean Tech Open.
The California Clean Tech Open is an independent effort by entrepreneurs, researchers, environmentalists, investors and others to create economic growth and environmental sustainability by sparking a clean technology cluster in California.
