How do you transform a silicon wafer supplier to the semiconductor industry into a global renewable energy company in six short years and where do you go from there?

Join us for an evening of engaging dialogue as Ahmad Chatila tells the fascinating story of the transformation from MEMC to today’s SunEdison, with the challenges and opportunities he faced along the way and how he navigated through them, followed by his assessment of today’s global energy industry and how new technologies and business models are emerging from bold and innovative new energy companies.
