Who’s Who in Clean Tech & Sustainability, Pacific Coast Business Times

Who’s Who in Energy & Environment

Who’s Who in Energy & Environment builds on the foundation of our former Who’s Who in Clean Tech & Sustainability special report. It has been expanded to include a separate listing of executives, government affairs representatives and major players in energy production, energy management and utilities. We will continue to expand our listing of executives and innovators in renewable energy, recycling and sustainable practices. The convergence of conservation and energy production under California’s AB 32 standards means traditional energy companies and alternative energy producers are becoming increasingly integrated, particularly with the arrival of utility-scale renewable projects. Who’s Who in Energy & Environment gives a more complete picture of the energy/environment lineup in our region.
