Green Energy and Transportation: Biofuels and Beyond -- Wed., Feb 15 -- MIT Enterprise Forum

Motoring with Mammoths: Entrepreneurship, Green Energy, and Transportation 

February 15th, 2006  

President Bush put it as bluntly as ever: "America is addicted to oil... The best way to break this addiction is through technology."   

Until now, "Big Auto" and "Big Oil" have dominated the market. With the government's renewable fuel initiatives announced January 31, energy entrepreneurs are preparing new business models to capitalize on the market opportunities.  

The energy revolution is here, and the next automotive paradigm is in the making.   

        Who is plugged in to next-generation transportation and how will they get around the energy monopolies?   
*   Which technologies are promising, and in what timeframe? 
*  Where can entrepreneurs and investors find promising returns on investment?  

Join us for a lively discussion, exploring the science and business of next-generation automotive propulsion. The panel includes:
