And finally, a nod of thanks to the New England Clean Energy Council for inviting me to their first annual Green Tie Gala. It was a great event, a celebration of the ‘energy’ present in the New England area to promote and commercialize clean energy technologies. New England has certainly become the hot bed of cleantech startups, but more importantly, the Massachusetts government has shown its leadeship by staying way ahead of the everyone else in sponsoring, promoting and providing support to clean energyand energy efficency initiatives in the region. Kudos to Nick D’Arbeloff, Trish Fields, and the rest of the NECEC team.
