Was “cleantech” just a bubble? Not according to Scott Edward Anderson, The Green Skeptic. His wrap-up of the 2014 Cleantech Innovation Summit shows a sector of technology that is just getting started.

Killer quote from General Electric’s GE Ventures:

“Solar is freaking us out,” said Colleen Calhoun of GE Ventures, “It is growing so fast, it is getting so big.”
GE doesn’t get freaked out very easily. I hear rumblings about solar taking off strong in the next few years – a potential disruption in the utilities sector. This is one trend to watch.
