Innovators in Energy From Wood and Wind, by Kay Mann

As part of Maine Startup & Create Week, E2Tech is bringing together three new and dynamic companies and the next generation of wind, tidal and biomass energy technologies. The founders and CEOs of Ocean Renewable Power Company, Interphase Energy and Altaeros Energies will share their entrepreneurial paths, their target markets and their plans to transform how homes and businesses use renewable energy resources.

We will also introduce the Cleantech Navigate Northeast system to connect Maine's startup companies and entrepreneurs with regional investment, mentor, customer, and other business development support.

About the speakers:
