We are excited to announce that our keynote speaker will be Danny Kennedy, CoFounder of Sungevity, a global solar electricity company. Danny started Sungevity, the largest privately held solar service company in the USA, in 2007 and has worked there in various roles ever since. He also cofounded The SfunCube – the only Incubator and Accelerator supporting solar entrepreneurs to succeed in 2013. He authored the book “Rooftop Revolution: How Solar Power Can Save Our Economy – and Our Planet – from Dirty Energy” in 2012.

Our Annual Dinner is a great opportunity to network with over 400 business and clean economy leaders, elected officials, and environmental champions. It's also a great way to support the critical work of Climate Solutions. Climate Solutions works to engage a diverse community in climate change issues and accelerate practical and profitable solutions to global warming by galvanizing leadership, growing investment and bridging divides. Your support will help continue our work to propel the clean energy economy and implement real solutions to climate change in our region.

Table Captains

We'll need table captains to make the 7th Annual Dinner even better.  Table captains invite 9 other guests to sit with them and serve as their table captain during the event. Please contact Savitha Reddy Pathi if you are interested in being a table captain.


As a clean economy leader, you understand the importance of strong policy and powerful networks to build the foundations for a sustainable, carbon-free prosperity for the region.  The Climate Solutions annual dinner has become the premier event in Oregon where business leaders, elected officials, and clean energy advocates gather to celebrate successes and discuss pending challenges. Sponsoring Climate Solutions is a great way to showcase your leadership and support our mission. Please contact Claire Reimer if you are interested in sponsorship opportunities.
