Another big week for clean tech
Here are a few interesting stories from the week:
- David Baker of the San Francisco Chronicle has the above the fold cover story this morning on the green and clean tech industry, “Green Valley; New Tech: Environmentally minded ingenuity drives the latest business wave to plant its roots in the Bay Area.” Also check out the cover of the real estate section, “Green Into Gold.”
- Jennifer Kho of Red Herring has the March 5th cover story, “Old King Coal,” which looks at the rising interest in “clean” coal startups. Lots of other news during the week in Red Herring’s Energy Section as well. Particularly, there was buzz in the industry about, “Coal Loses in TXU Acquisition.”
- Todd Woody of Business 2.0 gave us daily coverage in his green wombat blog of PG&E’s plan to put two 40-megawatt wave farms up on Northern California’s coasts in the next few years as well as the potential for the utility company to look to British Columbia for wind power. Also check out, “Feds Invest $385 Million in Cellulosic Ethanol Plant.”
- MIT Technology Review has several new articles, “Tax Credits for Plug-In Hybrids,” “Zero Tolerance for Carbon-Dioxide Emissions,” and “Nucleur Energy for the Developing World.”
- Joel Makower looks at “California’s Bold Step Toward Sustainable Mobility.” Mike Millikan of WorldChanging also looks at Sustainable Mobility.
- John Cloud takes us through the ins and outs of the choice between buying local or organic food with the cover story in this week’s TIME magazine, “Forget Organic. Buy Local.” This happens to focus on food but many of the themes and debates ring true in the world of sustainable business….who to buy from, where to get it, are your suppliers in China and next door following sustainable practices, etc.
Time for my morning run with my brother-in-law who is here to visit our 3-week old little man. The surf looks like fun. Maybe this afternoon.
