Good luck to the Conference of Parties in Copenhagen! I have the privilege of traveling there over the weekend as part of a delegation organized by California’s Climate Action Reserve and its program arm, the Center for Climate Action. This delegation of over 100 individuals includes business people, state and local officials and staff (including Governor Schwarzenegger, two other U.S. governors and two Canadian premiers).
On November 12, Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and a senior member of the Senate Finance Committee, visited Applied’s Santa Clara, California campus to learn more about Applied’s solar activities.
As part of our kick-off activities for this year’s Solar Decathlon, Applied Materials hosted a panel discussion on scaling renewable energy at the National Press Club in Washington D.C yesterday. The panel included reps from Pacific Gas and Electric Company(PG&E), Bechtel, Green Strategies, the Bipartisan Policy Center as well as Applied Materials Chairman and CEO Mike Splinter.
