Searching for the most compelling clean energy innovators

Written by Jim Pierobon

Wherever one looks, from China to India to Denmark to the United States, the race to innovate to a cleaner energy future is on. The more President Obama talks about clean energy nnovation the more U.S. seems to be losing the race because other nations are already very busy at this or are racing ahead.

Or are they?

 teams, and/or companies that are developing cutting-edge technologies with real-world applications. The Energy Fix is doing this to spotlight what’s working and what’s not so that policymakers, venture capitalists, scientists, engineers, NGOs and others can learn from each other’s successes and failures.

Everyone wants green jobs. The Energy Fix especially is seeking the most effective and efficient innovations that generate new, sustainable jobs.

It may prove difficult to get entrepreneurs et. al. and others to talk about their work, whether they’re in a garage in Silicon Valley or a government-assisted research facility in or near Golden, Wuxi, Mumbai or Aarhus. No matter the obstacles, The Energy Fix is in the hunt.

To a cleaner energy future — sooner rather than later.
