States Innovating Energy – Catherine Williams, Massachusetts Clean Energy Center

With the Trump administration cutting energy innovation and climate change initiatives, and saying that the states can pick up the slack, it’s a good time to re-air our enlightening episode with a woman on the front lines of a state leading the way: Catherine Williams of the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MCEC).

From solar energy development to the advancement of CleanTech, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center has been one of the first U.S. state agencies to focus strictly on clean energy investment.
