Energy Innovation and the Economy: New England Speaks Out on Video

During the networking-and-refreshments portion of Xconomy’s forum on Energy Innovation at the British Consulate General in Cambridge, MA, last week, we pulled aside a few volunteers to share their personal thoughts about energy innovation on camera. We’ve rolled the most interesting responses together into the 10-minute video at the end of this post.

Xconomy’s business manager Richard Freierman—our interviewer, cameraman, editor, and producer for this project—asked each interviewee to comment on energy innovation and how it can be a driver for the local economy in New England.

Thank you to all of the forum participants who contributed their thoughts for the video, including:
