Hi, what are you looking for?

CleanTechnica
So, below are some top cleantech stories of the week we haven't hit yet. But before you check those out, I want to let you know that I'm changing the way I do these daily/weekly news roundups (again). I think this new change will be best for everyone (hope so).

Top Cleantech News, & Cleantech Roundup Changes

So, below are some top cleantech stories of the week we haven’t hit yet. But before you check those out, I want to let you know that I’m changing the way I do these daily/weekly news roundups (again). I think this new change will be best for everyone (hope so).

Renewable energy heaven.

So, below are some top cleantech stories of the week we haven’t hit yet. But before you check those out, I want to let you know that I’m changing the way I do these daily/weekly news roundups (again). I think this new change will be best for everyone (hope so). Rather than put these in weekly topic-specific posts each day of the week (i.e a solar post on Monday, a wind post on Tuesday, etc.), I’m just doing a general “cleantech news” roundup every day. BUT, it won’t be as a post, it will be as a page. The page will have the same link forever (or something like forever, not sure if it will last as long as nuclear waste), so bookmark it  — this page will not show up in our RSS feed, in our email newsletters, on our Facebook page, or in our Twitter stream.

Benefits — more timely, one link, simpler to go through, more time-efficient for me (allowing me to focus on writing more, and do many other things needed to advance the site).

So, with that out of the way, here are top cleantech stories of the week we haven’t touched yet. Below is how they will regularly be organized on the Cleantech News page (and these are already over there to get the page started).
