World Climate Ltd, in partnership with the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) and the Northeast Clean Energy Council (NECEC), today announced that Horizon18 – a global solutions event for the clean economy – will be held in Boston from October 10 to 11, 2018.

Horizon18 will bring together clean economy solutions providers, customers, innovators and investors to connect on projects that translate climate goals into solutions, innovations, new markets and partnerships.

The two-day event will leverage the valuable business leadership and innovation expertise of MassCEC and NECEC – two leading clean energy business organizations in the Northeast U.S – with the international experience of World Climate Ltd, which has worked within stakeholder engagement, large-scale collaborations and business events for almost a decade.

“The Commonwealth has earned a reputation as a global hub for innovation, and we are looking forward to partnering with World Climate Ltd and NECEC to create a platform for the cleantech sector to explore business opportunities and pursue meaningful action on climate change,” said MassCEC CEO Stephen Pike. “We are proud to support this global summit of leaders and innovators as we continue to build a clean energy economy.”

“NECEC is thrilled to partner on this pivotal event that will showcase the strength of the Northeast clean energy ecosystem to the world’s leading clean energy business leaders and foster meaningful business relationships to advance clean economy solutions throughout many regions of the world,” said NECEC President Peter Rothstein.

“World Climate Ltd is delighted to announce the launch of Horizon18 as a new global platform for clean innovations, investments, solutions and partnerships’ said CEO of World Climate Ltd Jens Nielsen. “Together with MassCEC and NECEC, we are striving to create a unique opportunity to bring together customers, solution providers and investors – and there’s nowhere better than Boston to connect clean innovations, projects and initiatives from around the globe”.

Horizon18 will be located at the Boston Exhibition & Convention Center and will include:

– An international conference with keynotes, plenaries and discussions; – A showcase of innovative solutions and initiatives in a large networking area; – A unique business matchmaking platform, both online and on-site for organized private meetings; – Co-located side events providing interactive workshops, master classes, solutions launches and much more.

The global event will cover sectors and industries such as energy, waste, water, production, mobility and cities, and will bring together state and city public officials, startups, corporations and investors to enable forward-thinking stakeholders to translate their goals into cutting-edge projects and partnerships that grow the clean economy.

Horizon18 is ideally located in the middle of a world-class clean economy ecosystem. Boston, Massachusetts and the US Northeast are home to an internationally leading community of innovators who are driving the transition to local, regional and global clean economies.
