LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VerdeXchange's 16th annual cross-platform California conference took place April 30 - May 3, at the Omni Hotel DTLA as well as at the Port of Los Angeles on Wednesday morning.
Once again, accomplished clean and green tech entrepreneurs, energy & water companies, blue economy mavens, advanced vehicle manufacturers, software & hardware developers, public policymakers as well as procurers, innovative financiers, and environmental stewards gathered under one roof to assess “what’s in market,” “what’s about to be in market,” and “what’s needed in market” to continue growing the global trillion-dollar green economy.
VX2023 built upon and reaffirmed the central thesis learned from 16 years of VerdeXchange -- that California and the Western States are opportunity-rich markets for renewables, sustainable practice, and finance, as well as portals to all of North America.
An array of global market leaders from the mayor of Los Angeles to the Consulate General of Japan examined how cities, states, and regions, in collaboration with public and private partners and community stakeholders, should and will leverage the $1.1 trillion in US infrastructure funding now flowing to localities, after decades of neglect, to optimize economic recovery, maximize transformational climate infrastructure investments, and accelerate growth of the global clean energy economy.
“This was one of the strongest and best-attended conferences we’ve had to date,” said David Abel, Chairman and founder of VerdeXchange. “Our audience comes looking for insights or to share best-in-market opportunities, and we believe we’ve managed to provide exactly that with this year’s conference. A very broad selection of influential policymakers and innovators get that rare opportunity to rub shoulders at our conferences so they can get a close-up view of what’s trending in the market or positioned to soon be in the market.”
Hundreds of speakers shared insights on topics ranging from decarbonization, the future scope of hydrogen energy, natural gas, utility undergrounding, climate leadership and more, imparting up-to-the-moment insights on new energy economy markets.
VX2023 offered leaders in the energy, water, mobility, finance, ocean technology, and built environment sectors the opportunity to share innovations, form partnerships, and capitalize on the growth of the economy of the 21st century.
