I’m fired up about being a speaker at Solar Power International, now part of North American Smart Energy Week. Our presentation was based on an analysis and set of interviews with industry leaders on what the industry can do about profit pressure from commoditization.
The quarterly Cleantech Editors Roundtable is back! We recently hosted the second roundtable discussion with our guests: Catherine Morehouse of Industry Drive; Darius Snieckus of Recharge News; Heather Clancy of GreenBiz; Jennifer Runyon Clarion Events; Yann Brandt of Solar Wake Up; Zachary Shahan of Cleantechnica.
The panel discussed the future of renewable energy, fossil fuels, and how the pandemic is reshaping the industry.

Offshore wind must effectively engage coastal communities. It can save money and avoid heartache through the lessons of other clean economy sectors.
"Solar and onshore/offshore wind developers. Download, read and take action.… You'll thank Mike Casey and me." – Susan Munroe, Director of Economic Development, Chambers for Innovation and Clean energy.
Nickalus "Nico" Johnson and I had a great conversation about the state of #solar and #cleantech #marcom. His SunCast Podcast is a rising platform in the industry, and I was honored to be on with Nico again.

We’re proud to have hosted the editors of six leading clean economy news sites last month. It was the first time they’d convened to discuss trends in the sectors they cover. In our most recent post, we summarized trends the editors followed pre-pandemic and their predictions for how clean economy companies emerge post-pandemic.
However, the panel also focused on the emerging business model for utilities. That topic has received attention from Vox’s David Roberts (here and here), former FERC Chairman Jon Wellinghoff and Stanford’s Mark Jacobson, to name a few.

We recently brought together six editors of leading clean economy news sites for Tigercomm's first-ever Cleantech Editors Webinar. It was the first time the editors had convened to exchange views. The result was a fun, insightful conversation with nearly 100 people in the audience.
We covered a lot of ground in an hour, leaving several dozen listener questions unanswered. But we spent the first third of the webinar focused on two related questions that were on the minds of many:

One of the highlights of our WINDPOWER trade show experience was getting to talk with industry leaders working to secure support in communities with proposed wind farms. As part of our “Not Just for NIMBYs” interview series, we spoke with our first IOU leader, DTE Manager of Renewable Energy Development Matt Wagner. His company has gone from one of the most coal-intensive utilities to one that’s leading the way to a clean energy future. DTE has developed, owns and operates over one gigawatt of wind energy, and it recently committed to an 80% reduction in its corporate carbon footprint.
