Chevron Current and Former CTOs to Speak About "The Power of Human
Energy: Finding Newer, Cleaner Ways to Power the World" at 9th Annual
Clean-Tech Investor Summit 
PALM SPRINGS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 --  The 9th Annual
Clean-Tech Investor Summit, presented by International Business Forum
and chaired by Technology Partners' Ira Ehrenpreis, taking place
February 6-7 in Palm Springs, California, announced today that
attendees of the conference will have the rare opportunity to hear
from two luminaries in the energy industry -- the current Vice
President and Chief Technology Officer of Chevron John W. McDonald
and former Chevron Chief Technology Officer Donald Paul. 
The two CTOs will participate in a keynote conversation titled, "The
Power of Human Energy: Finding Newer, Cleaner Ways to Power the
World," offering a lively view of an energy company's roadmap to and
through the 21st century with an eye towards the integration of new
technology, new infrastructure and needed intelligence for the modern
electrical grid.  
Issues discussed to include:  

--  How does a major energy company address the needs for upgrading
    infrastructure while incorporating the latest intelligence platforms?
--  How will that be translated into costs or savings in both energy and
    economics to the consumer?
--  In a world dominated by headlines of domestic energy finds (natural
    gas and oil) how do the energy companies reflect those assets in their
    long term planning, as well as in any short term economics?
--  Do renewables continue to accelerate as a percentage of the overall
    energy mix and how do Chevron and major energy companies plan on
    participating in that mix of energy feedstocks?

As in past years, the 9th annual Clean-Tech Investor Summit is expected
to be another sold-out event bringing together the "who's-who" of the
clean tech sector including leading investors, Fortune 500
executives, and entrepreneurs for two days of high-level
presentations, conversations, and networking. Year after year, the
most important people in the clean tech ecosystem return to the
conference, recognizing the importance of convening the key players
of the clean tech industry and staying on top of the sector's most
important trends.
