Companies that use technology to make a cleaner and greener environment are invited to showcase their innovations at the CleanTech Expo and Mixer. The event will be held on Thursday, June 30, at the Riverside Convention Center.
The event is brought by the Riverside Chamber and California Air Resources Board, or CARB. Riverside County is at the forefront of air quality improvement, environmental, healthcare, energy, and sustainability research and technology.
The CleanTech Expo and Mixer is an excellent way to explore and learn about how local businesses, schools, and community organizations are leveraging innovation to make the world a better place. Attendees will get the opportunity to mingle with thought leaders in business education research and technology while enjoying refreshments.

How is Technology Making the World a Safer and Greener Place?
Innovation and technology are making the world a safer and greener place. The world is on the verge of a major transformation, one that will be driven by technological innovation. As the world’s population continues to grow at an alarming rate, resources are dwindling at an increasing rate. We have to find ways to provide for this growing population without destroying our environment in the process.
Role of the Business World
Companies use innovation to solve such problems by creating new technologies that will make it easier for us to sustain our planet without harming it. Here are some examples:
- Solar Power – Solar power has been around for decades, but recent technological advances have made it much more efficient than ever before. Many scientists believe that solar power could be the answer to all of our energy needs in just a few short years!
- Electric Cars – Electric cars are becoming more popular every year as people realize how much they benefit society and their pocketbooks! They’re not only good for the environment but also cost less than traditional gas-powered cars because they don’t require expensive parts like engines or transmissions! And best of all, they’re fun to drive too!
Role of the Education Department
Regarding education, the world has never been more ready for a clean energy revolution. The number of children in school is expected to grow by 130 million over the next decade. Innovative technologies are helping educators teach with solar power and other sustainable energy sources that reduce carbon emissions and provide safe learning environments for students.
Solar panels are being installed in schools across the globe, providing electricity for up to 40 hours per week during daylight hours.
In addition to reducing carbon emissions and creating healthier indoor environments for students, these projects give communities a chance to invest in their futures through job training programs that teach skills such as solar panel installation and maintenance.
Businesses Driving Efficiency in California
California is at the forefront of a new era of environmental stewardship. While many companies have traditionally focused on reducing their carbon footprint, businesses are now looking at other ways to drive efficiency and reduce waste, creating cleaner communities and high quality of life for their employees.
Here are some examples of how businesses are leading the way:
- Apple’s new headquarters are powered entirely by renewable energy, including solar panels on its roof.
- Tesla has installed more than 3.6 gigawatts of rooftop solar power systems worldwide.
- Google has reduced its carbon footprint to zero since 2007 by using renewable energy sources, recycling waste, and using public transportation when possible.
On the other hand, the State Government is also pushing for clean energy. Startempire Wire reported in February this year that the California Blueprint Budget includes $2 billion ($2.035 Billion General Fund) over two years for a Clean Energy Investment Plan. The funds will be available for projects including:
- Long Duration Storage—
- Green Hydrogen
- Industrial Decarbonization
- Food Production Investment
- Oroville Pump Storage
- Low-Income Weatherization Program—$25 million
- Community Resilience Centers Program—$25 million
