On Cleantech is Seeking Creative Entrepreneurs

Michael, 

I can understand your frustration in trying to get government funding, especially these days, in the wake of the Solyndra debacle. Have you tried ARPA-E? I've heard good things about it.

Thanks for your comment.

Milburnski,

I do share your frustrations on the lack of strategic focus and resolve of the US in enabling real clean technology progress. Having said that, I have to put faith that the US government will have to eventually have that strategic focus and resolve as they will have no other choice if they want to stay competitive in the global world. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Thank you for your comment.

Andrew and Jim, you both are right. It's not about being an entrepreneur per se, but about being an entrepreneur who solves big problems. Those who solve the biggest problems are usually the greatest rewarded as well. Not only in financial terms, but also in human satisfaction terms. 

Thanks for your comments.

On Grid Resiliency Is Required for Improved Grid Reliability

Great post, Christine!

Thought Profs Kassakian and Schmalensee explained the Future of the Electric Grid multidisciplinary study well -- balanced and more "objective" view of what it is today and what it will/should become in the future.
