Who will be addressing a verdant agenda, it seems. From The New York Times, “Treasury Breaks Bread and Shops Ideas From Big Clean-Tech Players“:

On Thursday, the White House plans to hold a jobs summit that includes advocates for a “green bank.” If Congress adopts the program in the House-passed climate bill, a federal nonprofit bank would accelerate the diffusion of loans, loan guarantees and other financing to renewable energy, smart grid, energy efficiency and nuclear power projects. Treasury could channel as much as $10 billion to the proposed Clean Energy Deployment Administration. That federal support, according to advocates, could guarantee $100 billion in federally backed loans and leverage another $100 billion in private capital.

UPDATE: Careless reading on our part. About 130 attendees are expected, so the list above is just partial.
