Learning from Renewable Energy Entrepreneurs

The renewable energy industry is being built by risk-taking entrepreneurs who are not afraid to fail. Today, the work of these fearless trailblazers has brought us on the verge of a renewable energy revolution. In this podcast, we'll speak to a few entrepreneurs and learn from their experiences.

Author and blogger Sramana Mitra describes the characteristics of a successful entrepreneur; Steve Kropper of Wind Pole Ventures tells us about the importance of flexibility and creativity; and Nancy Hartsoch gives us the update on SolFocus, a former California garage start-up that is looking to take the concentrating PV market by storm.

Inside Renewable Energy offers the latest in renewable energy news and information.
