Chief Technology Officer Dustin Nord spoke at Implementing COP 21 – Energiewende regarding the company’s product and the importance of uniting the southeast cleantech community, along with other leaders and Cleantech Open alumni such as Innovasan, Smart Charge Light, and Tethis.
“It is an ongoing priority for our company to support the initiatives of Cleantech Open Southeast as an alumnus,” says Dustin Nord, CTO of NG1 Technologies. “There is an opportunity for the southeast, specifically Atlanta, to establish itself as a community that fosters solutions for today’s urgent energy, environmental and economic challenges. Cleantech Open Southeast and the German Consulate General brought a number of industry experts together to exchange ideas among the cleantech community during the conference, and we hope more companies will join our efforts.”
Organized by Cleantech Open Ambassador-at-Large Troy Von Ottnot, the conference was held at the Georgia Tech Resarch Institute Conference Center. The German Consulate General participated, sharing information about Germany’s ‘Energy Transition’ that is currently underway, shifting the country’s energy portfolio to one dominated by renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable development.

In addition, Cleantech Open’s Chairman of the Board presented, emphasizing the value of supporting cleantech entrepreneurialism and thanking the Atlanta community for its support of Cleantech Open.
