AlwaysOn, the leading producer of world-class tradeshows and events, provided a preview of next week's AlwaysOn GoingGreen, which runs September 15-17 at Cavallo Point in San Francisco. In its second year, more than seven hundred entrepreneurs, eminent researchers, venture capitalists and private-equity investors will come together to identify the most promising opportunities in the burgeoning greentech category.

“As investments continue to flourish in greentech, AlwaysOn is here to highlight the innovators who are driving its growth,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “We're thrilled to provide an open platform for these brilliant minds to debate and discuss the trends in 2009 and beyond.”

AlwaysOn GoingGreen presenters include:
• The Honorable Chuck Reed, mayor of San Jose
• Vinod Khosla, veteran entrepreneur and co-founder of Sun Microsystems
• Steve Jurvetson, partner at Draper Fisher Jurvetson
• Elon Musk, chairman and CEO of SpaceX
• David Chen, vice president at Morgan Stanley
• Ray Lane, managing partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers
• Michelle Kaufmann, CEO of Michelle Kaufmann Designs, Inc.
• Steve Westly, managing partner at The Westly Group

AlwaysOn GoingGreen session highlights include:
• “The Carbon Offset Windfall” – Whether we have carbon taxes, carbon trading, or both, the magnitude of the potential transfer of wealth will be unprecedented in the history of civilization.

• “Next Generation Biofuel” – What is the future of biofuel, who is driving that future, and when is it going to get here?

• “Green Nanotech & Synthetic Genomics” – A mutually reinforcing renaissance in nanotech, biotech and information technology is creating new applications in energy, remediation and industrial chemicals.

Last week, AlwaysOn announced its coveted GoingGreen 100 Top Private Companies Awards and named Synthetic Genomics as the GoingGreen Overall Winner. Other category winners were Amyris Biotechnologies in Biofuels, CoalTek in Clean Energy, GlycosBio in Clean Manufacturing, Silver Spring Networks in Energy Efficiency, Premium Power in Energy Storage, EcoMotors in Green Transportation, Serious Materials in Green Materials, Genomatica in Green Nanotech & Synthetic Genomics, Ze-Gen in Resource Recovery & Waste Management, BrightSource Energy in Solar Energy and AbTech Industries in Water Technology.
