Tremont Electric, makers of the nPower® PEG, the world’s first passive kinetic energy charger for personal hand-held electronics, will sponsor the VIP reception and cocktail hour at the 3rd Annual Climate Leadership Gala at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC, Tuesday, March 27, 2012. Placed in your backpack, briefcase, or purse, the nPower® PEG harvests your kinetic energy as you walk and stores it for use when you need it - off the grid.
The Gala brings together leaders of industry, government and the NGO community to celebrate achievements, discuss how to remove impediments, and forge a path to a post-carbon future. The Gala is the centerpiece of the Creating Climate Wealth Summit.
“We believe kinetic energy generation should be at the center of a carbon-free future,” said Aaron LeMieux, Tremont Electric founder & CEO, and inventor of nPower® technology. “Kinetic energy is all around us, and we are committed to giving consumers the ability to harvest it for their own electricity, at the consumer level and long term, on a commercial scale.”
The Gala will award The 2012 Women and the Green Economy (WAGE™) Leadership Award to Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action. “As a woman helping to lead a clean energy startup, it’s a great honor to sponsor the Gala this year,” said Jill LeMieux, VP of Marketing at Tremont Electric.
New York Times columnist Tom Friedman will keynote, with a guest performance by 2004 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Jackson Browne.
