Nextek Power Systems Inc. CEO Paul Savage will speak at the 7th annual Pacific Crest Emerging Technology Summit, scheduled for February 14-15, at the Westin San Francisco. He will be on the panel discussing “Driving Down Energy Cost with Smart Buildings” at 3 p.m. on the 15th. The summit will consist of two days of discussions surrounding numerous topics, including next generation infrastructure, mobility, global Internet, Software-as-a-Service, Big Data, clean technology and several others. Attendees include top executives from leading public and private technology companies, tech-focused public market investors, private equity firms, venture capitalists, and corporate development executives from top acquirers. Among other topics, Mr. Savage will discuss Nextek’s Direct Current technology, which relies primarily on photovoltaic (solar) energy, and can be deployed in buildings and campuses, offering significant energy savings.
Mr. Savage is a regular participant at events promoting renewable energy around the world. For example, last June he took part in a Roundtable on Clean Energy sponsored by the Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) held in Cambridge, England.
