Speaker Series


The SMART Speaker Series in association with SMART Community Exchange (SCE) and Eco Commerce Exchange (ECE) is now in production. From live events and select local venues, to an on-line presence that enables the worlds of social media and live performance to seamlessly meet, the ECE experience is about collaborative learning, discovering new business opportunities and unique contacts.The ECE is always open and just waiting to be discovered. 



The Speakers have at least one thing in common - they share insight, provoke thought and stimulate conversation about compelling and timely issues, stories and events. By offering entertaining educational opportunities that are unique and unavailable elsewhere, ECE continues to attract expert Speakers from around the world. 

The first Speaker Series in 2013 featured a number of highly regarded experts in the field of Eco Commerce. The lecture program has since expanded to include internationally renowned business executives, investors, entrepreneurs, policy makers, philanthropists, scientists, authors, media experts and other luminaries.

The Eco Commerce Exchange (ECE) has become a well-established and highly regarded highlight of the global commerce, and an integral part of the international business community. 

For topic suggestions, speaker engagements, and sponsorships:

International Audience

Collaborative Online Learning 

This speaker series is about bringing best practices to market. ECE brings together individuals and organizations in a way that does not require a large investment of funds and time. By pooling our contacts and resources, we can find new opportunities to bring innovations to market in a quick and efficient manner. Together, we can overcome market penetration challenges and remove barriers accelerating access to markets, funding and government approval process.

This Speaker Series will discuss the following:  


'Energy Efficiency should be treated as our most precious asset'

Energy Efficiency (EE), Alternative Energy (AE), Renewable Energy Technology (RET) 

Ensuring energy security cost-effectively is a global challenge. Tackling these issues will require efforts from stakeholders worldwide. To find solutions, the public and private sectors must work together, sharing burdens of resources, while at the same time multiplying results and outcomes.

Through Eco Commerce Exchange (ECE), we enable businesses, industries, international organizations and non-government organizations to share research on breakthrough technologies, to fill existing research to deployment gaps, to build pilot projects and to carry out deployment or demonstration programs. In short, the global exchange, can comprise any technology-related activity that supports energy security, economic growth, environmental protection and engagement worldwide. A new partner project may be created at any time, provided at least two parties agree to work on it together.

At the core of ECE, is our Multilateral Consultative Committee (MCC) and international network of senior energy technology innovators and experts facilitating the entry of new and improved energy technologies in the marketplace. 

Multilateral Consultative Process (MCP) and Implementation Agreements (IA)

ECE makes multilateral consultative process and hands-on-advisory program available to stakeholders and their customers on their request, for the resolution of questions regarding the implementation of the IA projects.

The ECE supports the multilateral consultative process. The objective of the multilateral consultative process is to resolve questions regarding the implementation of IAs. This objective is to be achieved by:

  • Providing hands-on-advisory services and promoting understanding of the IAs;
  • Advising Parties on, or assisting them with their difficulties in implementing the IAs;

The multilateral consultative process is to be conducted in a facilitative, non-confrontational, transparent and timely manner, and to be non-judicial. Parties concerned are entitled to participate fully in the process.

The process can be initiated by:

  • A Party or a group of Parties if they experience difficulties in implementation;
  • A Party or a group of Parties with respect to another Party or a group of Parties;
  • The ECE itself

The MCC reviews Technology Submittal Forms (TSF), Implementation Agreements (IA), and Partner Project/Initiative proposal and provide appropriate assistance by:

  • Clarifying and resolving questions; 
  • Providing advice and recommendations on procuring technical & financial resources to resolve these difficulties;
  • Advising on compiling and communicating information.

The conclusions and recommendations of the MCC are sent to the Party or Parties concerned and they should be given the opportunity to comment on them. Such comments may include:

  • Recommendations on cooperation between the Party or Parties concerned and other Parties to further the objective of the IA;
  • Recommendations on measures to be taken by the Party or Parties concerned for the effective implementation of the IA.

The MCC convene at least once a year in Atlanta, Georgia. Whenever practicable, the meeting will take place in conjunction with the ECE Meetings, during which the MCC chapters should report on all aspects of its work to ECE. Key focus:

  • Sustainable Energization; 
  • Determining appropriate technologies for Sustainable Energization;
