The Summit was attended by President Jimmy Carter, Ted Turner, Tom Steyer, Amory Lovins, Graciela Chichilnisky, Daniel Fung, General Wesley Clarke and a host of experts in technology and funding all strategizing how to move the world to renewable energy sources.
Lawrence was invited to sit on two panels. One panel was chaired by General Clarke and the other by Sally Ranney, the President of the American Renewable Energy Institute.
Following his appearance and contribution Lawrence was invited to become a full Board Member of the Institute and is helping to strategize their very exciting future.
