NEW YORK, Jan 15, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Piper Jaffray will host its fifth annual Clean Technology & Renewables Conference Feb. 23 in New York. Industry participants and investors will have an unparalleled look at one of the fastest growing sectors: clean technology and renewables. Investors will gain insights from leading solar, wind, smart grid, energy storage, LED, biofuels, water, automotive efficiency and other clean technology companies from across the global supply chain.

"We expect investors will walk away with strong conviction that the clean technology and renewables sector represents one of the best secular investment themes," said Jesse W. Pichel, senior research analyst at Piper Jaffray. "The sector has become even more important in light of the global recession, because of its ability to retool the industry and potentially fuel economic recovery."

The annual conference is known as the first and largest investor event in the sector. 700 company participants and investors are expected to attend, with both awareness of and interest in clean technology and renewables increasing. Attendees will learn about unfolding technology advancements and cost improvements that will make these technologies competitive with traditional energy sources.

Company and investor participation in the Piper Jaffray Clean Technology & Renewables Conference is by invitation only. Clients interested in attending should contact their Piper Jaffray representative. General and research-related media inquiries should be directed to AnalystMediaRelations@pjc.com.
