Energy Businesses Recognizing the Need to Diversify

This week, we’re podcasting from the Power-Gen International conference in Orlando, Florida. This event is mostly geared toward traditional power companies; however, renewables are starting to play a bigger role at Power-Gen as businesses and investors in the space recognize the major changes taking place in the energy landscape. We’ll speak to some company executives about how this shift is impacting the way companies operate.

John Adams, senior vice president of new projects at Mitsubishi Power Systems describes the company’s new 2.4-MW wind turbine as well as the reasons behind Mitsubishi’s involvement in a wide range of energy sectors.

Perry Fontana, vice president of projects at Ausra explains the elegance and simplicity of concentrating solar power.

Alan Champagne, vice president of business development at CH2M HILL tells us about the need for traditional energy companies to diversify in order to succeed.

And Joe Treshler, vice president of business development at Covanta Energy talks about turning environmental problems into business opportunities.
