Is the Web the Most Powerful Clean Technology of our Lifetime?

The revolutionary growth in mobile, social, sensors, processing power, big data analytics and other information technologies is creating exciting new opportunities to harness resources more efficiently across the way we live, work, and play.

We call the increasing intersection of the clean economy and IT the Cleanweb. Growing this emerging market, and promising companies within it, is a core focus of our work at Pure Energy Partners.

To expand this market globally, we recently co-founded the The Cleanweb Initiative, an industry association devoted to growing the ecosystem of Cleanweb entrepreneurs, investors, and businesses. Led by CEO Blake Burris, The Cleanweb Initiative is supported by Spring Forward Foundation, Wilson Sonsini, our friends at GreenStart and Black Coral Capital, and a growing list of leading web and IT firms (to be announced shortly).

To learn about the world changing potential of the Cleanweb, see the presentation we did for SXSWi, How the Cleanweb Will Beat (and Better) Cleantech.
