CEO to Talk DIRTT at Tesla Motors-hosted World Energy Innovation Forum

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 7, 2014) - DIRTT CEO Mogens Smed is taking the company's message of sustainable, technology-driven 21st century interior construction to a leading conference on energy issues and opportunities.

Mogens will speak on "Resource Revolution: How to Capture the Biggest Business Opportunity in a Century" at the World Energy Innovation Forum in Fremont, CA. The two-day gathering May 14-15 draws 500 investors, entrepreneurs, policymakers and members of the energy ecosystem to network and listen to speakers ranging from Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk to former US Secretary of State George Shultz. Tesla is hosting this year's conference at its factory.

"Everything DIRTT does speaks to innovation, energy efficiency and sustainability," Mogens says. "Our ICE® software eliminates paper catalogues and ensures minimal manufacturing waste. Our fully customized components use sustainable, environmentally friendly materials and can be repurposed instead of being scrapped and sent to landfills. We design and locate our production facilities to minimize energy consumption and reduce our carbon footprint. We understand that building better, and building for the long term, is a critical part of managing our energy resources."

Mogens is co-presenting with Tom Siebel, CEO and founder of the smart grid analytics software firm C3 Energy; and Tom Werner, President and CEO of the solar power company SunPower Corporation. All three were profiled in the recently published book "Resource Revolution," which details how innovative entrepreneurs are turning our energy and resource challenges into major business opportunities.
