In early September, the X Prize Foundation will be hosting a forum titled, “Seeking Radical Breakthroughs in Alternative Energy — What I Would Advise the Next President.” It will discuss renewable energy ideas from biologist George Church, futurist Ray Kurzweil, inventor Saul Griffith and many others.

The forum will be held September 10 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Mass. Stay tuned for the available video of the event. If you’re interested in learning more or attending the forum, click here.

The X Prize Foundation is known for its breakthrough competitions, with prizes of $10 million or more awarded to the most innovative and revolutionary entries. One of the current competitions is the Progressive Insurance Automotive X Prize. Mother Earth News is sponsoring an entry in this 100-mpg competition.
