NBC’s Press:Here Features Ioxus; Talks Green Energy

As energy policy moves to the top of the U.S. agenda and the public’s mind, NBC’s Press:Here recently hosted me on the show as part of a roundtable discussion focusing on cleantech advancements including federal funding and policy, where the U.S. stands among global innovators and what it will take to finally achieve mass adoption of EVs. Press:Here, a Sunday morning news show, features key players in the tech industry and the top journalists who report on these tech companies together in a roundtable discussion.

Reporters Kym McNicholas, who recently joined the PandoDaily team, and Jon Swartz, from USA Today, joined me in this week’s roundtable. They brought a strong backing of technology knowledge and experience to the discussion. Kym, an expert on startup and technology news, has conducted many interviews with important names in the Silicon Valley. Jon is an award-winning technology reporter and Pulitzer Prize nominee reporting on Silicon Valley trends, social networking and various aspects of Internet security.

Green energy continues to be a hot topic, and much of our roundtable discussion focused on cleantech advancements, green energy policies and American leadership. As a cleantech manufacturer of ultracapacitors, Ioxus is particularly invested in developing technology to encourage widespread use of EVs.  We spoke about how to make EVs more prominent around the world and our country’s role in doing so.

If you’re in the San Francisco area, you can tune in to the show on Sunday, March 11 at 9 a.m. PT on NBC. The show also airs on the Washington, D.C. and Chicago NBC networks at 6 p.m. ET on Sunday. Or, if you can’t wait, you can watch the segment here:
