The Technology Forum of Delaware will focus on clean technology at an event next week.

“Cleantech encompasses a diverse range of products, services, and processes that harness solar and wind energy, use renewable raw materials, and dramatically reduce or eliminate emissions and waste,” the forum noted.

The TechForum event will feature cutting-edge research from the University of Delaware on electric vehicles that can return power to the grid, and the latest news from Motech on solar cell design and deployment.

The forum is slated for Nov. 20, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Chase Center on the Riverfront, Wilmington. Click here to register:  Speakers are:

– Willett M. Kempton, who serves as director of the Center for Carbon-free Power Integration at the University of Delaware. Kempton is a nationally renowned expert in two renewable energy fields: offshore wind power and electric vehicles. He has pioneered vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology and designed cars capable of absorbing excess energy when demand for power is low and returning some back to the electric grid when the demand for power is high.

– John P. Colarusso is Senior Director, Technology and Development for Motech Americas, LLC. Motech Americas, based near Newark, is the U.S. subsidiary of Motech Industries (Taiwan), the 5th largest photovoltaic (solar) manufacturer in the world. Motech’s Technology Center of Excellence for module design and development is based in Delaware. Colarusso entered the solar industry in 2008 when he joined General Electric’s Solar Technology team as a Six Sigma Black Belt.  In 2010, Motech Industries purchased the Newark location from GE and Colarusso assumed his current role.
