Interview With Google Sustainability & Energy Director (VIDEO)

Our friends over at Future360 recently caught up with Rick Needham, Director of Sustainability and Energy at Google. The interview is below. For text, check out the Future360 post.

We’ve been covering Google’s clean energy transformation with excitement for years now. One post that stands out to me is: Google’s Clean Energy Projects (7 Big Ones). But there have been many big stories since then.

Additionally, sister site The Inspired Economist just published an article yesterday on why Google is investing so heavily in renewable energy — I think it’s worth a read.

Of course, Google isn’t the only one. Warren Buffet, IKEA, Walmart, and many others are also heavily investing in cost-competitive (even money-saving) renewable energy.

    How about updating the Bloom Boxes Google has been trying out?

      not much going on with those. and, personally, think they won’t make much impact — not the best technology for these needs (expensive).
