We’re one week away from our next Cleantech Revolution Tour conference. We have another 5 presenters and panelists to announce, bringing us toward what we expect will be fascinating discussions, presentations, and workshops, as well as fruitful cleantech networking that will bring more business to early cleantech leaders, sprout new cleantech ideas, and stimulate new friendships.
If you’re in the region, be sure to register and join us in one week in Berlin and/or Wroclaw!
For now, here’s more info on the 5 additional cleantech presenters and panelists we recently confirmed (a couple of whom we have highlighted in individual articles):

In his capacity as a trusted analyst and consultant, Javier has helped cleantech companies enter and succeed in complex and intensely competitive markets worldwide. He has authored multiple studies for energy think tanks and renewable energy associations on lithium batteries, second-life batteries, energy markets, and electric vehicles. Javier has delivered keynote presentations for multiple industry conferences covering a variety of topics on the Digital Energy Revolution we are going through. In energy and carbon, Javier shares and analyses some of the main innovative recent energy and mobility developments.
Krzysztof Gawałek — Founder, Transporters & GreenGoo
Krzysztof is an electromobility practitioner who has been driving electric cars for years and drove with them over 100,000 km. In addition to a regular car rental company he started in late 2010, he created the GreenGoo project, which not only builds up its own car charging infrastructure and carsharing system, but also an intelligent mobile access system to the electromobility ecosystem (both – electric cars and charging points – are interdependent). He also wants to integrate that market by combining forces of interested parties in order to avoid fragmentation, which could slow development of this ecosystem which has such huge potential.
Despite the aforementioned experience with car rental and the electric car ecosystem, Krzysztof also has years of experience in other fields. With an aquaristic passion since his early years, in 2003 he entered that market with a retail shop, while in late 2005 he expanded into official and sole wholesale distribution in Poland of respected the German producer Juwel Aquarium, which is now a well established business under the name Juwel Polska, and which is one of the few major players in the country. Add to all of this his passion for basketball, with years of team experience, and a pilot licence as an answer to his love of flying, and you will know why for him sometimes only “the sky’s the limit.”
Piotr Mikos — Solar PV Specialist and Project Manager, Domy Czystej Energii (Clean Energy Houses) / Centrum Technologii Energetycznych (Centre for Energy Technologies)
Piotr Mikos is a PV enthusiast with years of experience in the renewable energy field. He started his journey with PV in 2011 and participated as project coordinator in the construction of photovoltaics power plants with a total capacity of 50 MWp in Italy, Germany, Great Britain, and Poland.
Piotr is currently promoting low-energy buildings and implementing photovoltaic solutions together with the “Domy Czystej Energii” architectural studio.
Piotr simultaneously collaborates strongly with the Centre for Energy Technologies — an R&D institution from Świdnica, Poland, that is involved in educational and promotional projects.
