Solving monumental problems creates monumental value. When the problem is as big as climate change, the opportunities for new solutions are immense – and so are the pitfalls. Rick Tallman will share real world examples including how his company designed a net zero apartment complex in Seattle using technology that didn’t exist by investing in it. He will talk about industry trends and outcomes. What’s working and what’s not? Who will be the winners and losers? What technologies are the most exciting and where are the dead ends? Where is there money to make – and lose?
