RALEIGH, N.C., (Feb. 17, 2014) … Sensus, a leading provider of clean technology solutions, announces Chairman Lou D’Ambrosio will be the keynote speaker at the inaugural N.C. Clean Tech Summit on February 26. D’Ambrosio will discuss how technology and clean tech initiatives in the Triangle and around the world are transforming the energy and water industries and enabling resource conservation for a cleaner and more sustainable future.
The Clean Tech Summit is a partnership of the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School Center for Sustainable Enterprise, UNC Institute for the Environment, the Research Triangle Cleantech Cluster and Strata Solar.
Sensus provides water, electric and gas utilities worldwide with products and services that help them and their customers conserve water and energy and increase efficiency. The data provided by clean technology solutions is also a powerful tool, helping utilities improve operations including faster service restoration following storms and natural disasters.
“It’s a changing world and industry and if we all don’t transform, reinvent and refocus, we’re going to leave behind a world that’s struggling with even bigger energy and environmental issues,” said D’Ambrosio. “The effects of transforming the water and energy industries now—using clean technologies—will have lasting benefits for utilities, consumers, and society.”
Now home to 200 firms specializing in smart grid, efficient water management and efficient transportation, North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park region is emerging as a global leader in clean technology. This summit, at the University of North Carolina’s Friday Center in Chapel Hill, aims to advance the development of the clean technology sector in North Carolina.
Sensus is a founding board member for the Research Triangle Cleantech Cluster.
