Andrew Barron Worden, chairman and CEO of the cleantech fund Barron Partners, has thrown down the (green) gauntlet to the world’s investment community, challenging them to invest more in clean technology.
In advance of a speech to the Energypath 2011 conference at DeSales University in Pennsylvania, Worden said:
“As the demand for energy grows, our reliance on fossil fuels will diminish and our appetite for clean, sustainable energy will increase. This is already driving a search for cutting edge technology in cleantech. We are challenging ourselves and others in the investment community to provide the critical capital needed to scale cleantech in a meaningful way.”
This sixth iteration of the Energypath conference will bring together 450 policy makers, professionals and other attendees on June 30, 2011. The conference theme is overcoming the barriers to a sustainable energy future.
Worden’s fund has invested over $450 million of its capital since 2002. His cleantech investments include companies focused on alternative energy systems, recycling and energy efficiency. Worden will discuss the future of cleantech investing in the U.S. during this year’s conference.
