SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- AlwaysOn, the leading producer of world-class conferences for venture investors and entrepreneurs of emerging private companies, today kicked off its annual AlwaysOn GoingGreen Silicon Valley conference. The conference is being held October 12-14, 2010 at the Presidio Golden Gate Club in San Francisco. The event begins with the presentation of the AlwaysOn GoingGreen 100, a list of the fastest growing green and clean tech companies. Speakers at the conference include Reyad Fezzani, CEO of BP Solar, and Des King, president of Chevron Technology Ventures, as well as leaders from the U.S. Department of Energy.



The AlwaysOn GoingGreen series is well known for drawing a wide variety of high-profile attendees from within the alternative energy and materials industry, including C-level executives, entrepreneurs, researchers, venture capitalists and private-equity investors. This elite group will join to discuss the latest trends in the Cleantech Industry and discuss promising investments.

Participants in this year's event will engage in more than a dozen in-depth panel discussions concerning the most vital issues in the world of clean technology. Panels include "Mass-Production of Green Vehicles," a dialogue on how to make the mass production of sustainable green vehicles economical, and "Outside the Meter: Upgrading the Power Grid," an in-depth discussion on the evolving electric power grid. These special sessions will offer diverse insight and solutions to some of the most pressing concerns that the industry has to offer. GoingGreen Silicon Valley also features several "CEO Showcases" during which high level executives will present to the attendees a brief overview of their technology and company strategy.

"Investors put more money into alternative energy start-ups in California than anywhere else in the world," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "While the technology industry as a whole is constantly changing, the green industry in particular continues to shift its shape everyday as it tries to keep up with regulations and meet the growing demand for these green resources. The companies and speakers at this conference represent the ones who have established themselves as ones to watch in an incredibly competitive atmosphere."
