Minerva Ventures was on the organizing committee of the Silicon Valley Energy Summit at Stanford University in June. The videos are now available from the event which included a lively debate on nuclear power featuring 2 Nobel Laureates. Marianna Grossman moderated a panel on Post Paris Climate Action which featured Jan Berman of Pacific Gas and Electric; Pat Burt, Mayor of Palo Alto and entrepreneur; Assemblymember Mike Gatto, Chair of the Utilities and Commerce Committee; and, Debbie Raphael, head of San Francisco's Department of the Environment. It was a lively and hopeful discussion about the role of the state, large and small companies and cities in implementing meaningful climate solutions.
