ROTH Capital Partners, Sustain OC, CMA and Procopio to Host Cleantech Private Capital Day at The Cove at UCI Applied Innovation, Irvine, California on October 3, 2018

September 18, 2018

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 18, 2018--ROTH Capital Partners (ROTH), a full service investment bank focused on serving emerging growth companies and their investors, will co-host Cleantech Private Capital Day 2018 on October 3 at The Cove at UCI Applied Innovation.

The first of its kind to be held in Orange County, the event presents a unique opportunity for investors to meet the founders and C-level executives of more than 25 privately-held Cleantech companies that are leading innovation in the energy, water and transportation sectors. The event will kick off with a keynote and sector panels, and include one-on-one opportunities with participating companies.

“The unique setting of The Cove and the conference format will allow attendees to meet other like-minded investors and leaders in Cleantech, and create relationships that go beyond the one-day event,” said Jesse Pichel, Managing Director of ROTH’s Cleantech investment banking team. “This event reflects ROTH’s leadership in supporting the growth of Cleantech companies, from capital formation and advisory services to equity research and other sustainability-focused conferences held throughout the year.”

The event is also timely, with the CleanTech industry receiving a boost from the Governor of California who recently issued an Executive Order that set a new goal for the state to achieve carbon neutrality “as soon as possible” and no later than 2045, and then net negative emissions thereafter. This is in addition to the existing statewide mandates of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, including requiring the state to double the rate of energy efficiency savings in buildings, setting a goal of 5 million zero emission vehicles by 2030, and supporting clean transportation to reduce petroleum use 45% by 2030.

ROTH, Sustain OC, CMA, Procopio and other partners have reached out across the U.S. to invite the most influential private cleantech companies and most impactful investors for the conference. ROTH is a founding member of Sustain OC, a trade association with its roots in cleantech economic growth that accelerates sustainability in the greater Orange County area through innovation, collaboration and education.
