It's time to gear up for this year's West Coast Green, the building and design tradeshow that highlights some of the greenest inventions and ideas in the industry. We had a blast last year, and are looking forward to finding out what this year has in store. It is happening on October 1-3 at San Francisco's Fort Mason Center. The line-up of speakers is impressive, and we already get a sneak peek of the showhouse. Click through to watch the preview.

Last year, the Innovation Pipeline was one of our favorite areas. It is green concepts galore, and this year, the emerging products are sure to be exciting to see - especially a set of solar tracking skylights designed to follow sun and maximize daylight harvesting. We'll bring you news of all these hot concepts that are hoping to hit the marketplace.

Beyond the Innovation Pipeline, we'll also be covering the Living Walls that are complete with storm water purification systems, the energy dashboard summit that will show off all the ways you can track and reduce energy consumption in your home, what speakers from Ray Anderson to Gavin Newsom to Michelle Kaufmann have to say, and more exciting advancements in architecture and design.
