Boulder is the Center of a Cleantech Revolution

I previously wrote in my newsletter, Energy Hedge, that the Boulder area was a center of cleantech. Well, that was before I visited. I just spent a week in Boulder, speaking at an energy conference on green, meeting with grad students and business faculty at the University of Colorado, and spending a morning with a cleantech vc who only invests in Colorado-based companies. People out here are very cognizant of environmental issues particularly when it comes to energy and water.

The Economic Crisis Will Not Stop Clean Energy Initiatives

While there is now much negative news about the drive for renewable energy and clean technology in the US in light of the economic crisis, what the pundits fail to realize is that energy prices at over $70 per barrel are substantially higher than the floor of $40. There seems to be so much nay saying before the election that it may help to set the record straight.
