The Conscious Economy Channel - CORE fusing sustainability with success!

But where to begin? That’s where CORE comes in. CORE is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping companies understand and implement sustainability policies and practices into their operations. Whether you’re a small start-up or an established enterprise, from supply chain to clean energy to social responsibility, CORE is the primary resource.

Top 50 VC-Funded Greentech Startups. Venture capital firms have invested almost $20 billion into hundreds of greentech startups since 2005.

Top 50 VC-Funded Greentech Startups

All of these firms are looking to launch a disruptive force into their target markets, scale rapidly and grow quickly. Very few of these firms will actually make it. We put our energy analysts, reporters and editors to the task of picking fifty VC startups in greentech that have at least a fighting chance of succeeding as VC-funded start-ups and making an impact on our energy-intensive lives. Selection criteria: Technological edge Potential to severely disrupt the market Great management team Massive market opportunity Substantial war chest Feasible exit strategy Sheer hype power Only venture-backed private firms.

United States Atlas of Renewable Resources. Renewable Energy News. The Emerging Climate Technology Consensus. Update (Jul 16, 2010): Expanding on a Washington Post op-ed, Vinod Khosla delineates his argument "about the deficiencies of an isolated cap-and-trade or carbon-pricing bill," and joins the climate technology consensus.

The Emerging Climate Technology Consensus

Khosla writes, "If we want to make a significant difference, we need to get on the path to reducing carbon worldwide by 80 percent now by focusing on what I call "carbon reduction capacity building" -- in other words, we need to develop radical carbon-reduction technologies. A utility cap (or a carbon price) won't build capacity -- it will just increase our utility costs and decrease our manufacturing competitiveness without any increase in our technological competitiveness. Update (Jul 14, 2010): Other observers have reached similar conclusions about the faltering pollution paradigm.

Update! 15 PowerPoint Slides That Shook the Earth : Greentech Media

Here is a collection of the best or at least the most notorious and historically significant slides in our industry. This collection has been one of our most popular pieces and I'm taking the opportunity to update some of the charts and add some additional commentary. After publishing this list to an overwhelming response, we heard from the original architects of some of these iconic greentech slides and we made sure to give them their overdue credit.

From the BP Statistical Review of World Energy -- here's a painful reminder of what we pay at the pump. It's a chart of Crude Oil Prices From 1861 to 2010. Make sure to contrast that with the Price Trends in Solar Modules in this slide with data from IPCC and Paula Mints of Navigant.
