CREATING THE CLEAN ENERGY ECONOMY, a 3-year i-SUSTAIN program will bring together clean energy visionaries and leaders, public officials, business executives, energy policy experts, entrepreneurs, investors, and others to help facilitate developing our signifiant clean energy capabilities (production, demand and control) to reduce fossil fuel use, decrease greenhouse gasses and create new economic opportunities for Washington State.
i-SUSTAIN, with it’s long history of involvement with Denmark, the world leader in renewable and sustainable energy, will facilitate partnerships and collaborations between Danish and Washington State public, commercial, academic and non-profit entities to work together to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and decrease greenhouse gas production. We thank the Scan|Design Foundation for its support of this very important initiative.
CREATING THE CLEAN ENERGY ECONOMY was developed in honor of Svend Auken, Danish politician, renewable and sustainable energy leader and amazing human being. No one had greater passion for renewable and sustainable energy than Svend. He was one of the key politicians responsible for Denmark successfully advancing toward developing its own clean energy economy. He was a great friend of
i-SUSTAIN’s until he died in 2009.
