June 26th, 2017 | by Joshua S Hill

The latest Energy Barometer from the Energy Institute has concluded that political risk and ramifications from the recent UK Brexit decision must not undermine the larger and essential need of providing reliable energy in a way that also keeps the country's emissions and prices down. 


Investing In The Future

June 24th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

Investing is sort of always kind of supposed to be about the future, right? The challenge that has faced many an investor is that the future can be hard to predict. As it turns out, that leads much of the investment community to look at the past and extrapolate forward


Countries Are Progressing Too Slowly On Green Growth, According To OECD

June 22nd, 2017 | by Joshua S Hill

A new report published this week by the OECD has concluded that, while many countries are making progress on environmental productivity in terms of carbon, energy, and materials, and the growing consensus that carbon dioxide emissions and fossil fuel use have decoupled from economic growth, progress is still too slow if we are to meet the targets outlined in recent international treaties and commitments.

How To Handle Trolls — Cleantech Communication Handbook Coming

June 14th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

Working in the cleantech communication business since the middle of 2009, I can say that I've picked up quite a few cleantech communication tips, and I try to sharpen them every day. Unfortunately, I've also seen a lot of examples of bad, bad, bad cleantech communication — communication flubs are quite abundant in this field. (And, yeah, I've been the person behind those bad examples from time to time.) Many cleantech enthusiasts actually use talking points and discussion strategies that are counterproductive. Yikes!

What’s The Effect of Driving Electric on Broader Energy Conservation? (CleanTechnica #EV Report)

Aside from that inherent energy conservation, though, how much do electric car drivers strove to conserve energy? And how much does driving electric encourage them to conserve energy? These are matters we dug into a little bit in our latest electric car driver report
