Your Chance to Direct CleanTechnica!!

June 11th, 2012 by  

It’s that time again — time for a CleanTechnica reader survey, our 2nd annual reader survey!

I think this should take about 1-2 minutes to complete (unless you have a lot of extra comments to make). And, if you have been following CleanTechnica for very long at all, I think you well know that we really will be taking your answers into account.

If you have any additional comments, you can enter them like normal in the comments below, or you can send me a private message via our CleanTechnica Facebook page or via Google+ (my personal account).

Here’s the survey (you can complete it below or via this link):


Check out our new 93-page EV report, based on over 2,000 surveys collected from EV drivers in 49 of 50 US states, 26 European countries, and 9 Canadian provinces.

About the Author

is tryin' to help society help itself (and other species) with the power of the typed word. He spends most of his time here on CleanTechnica as its director and chief editor, but he's also the president of Important Media and the director/founder of EV Obsession, Solar Love, and Bikocity. Zach is recognized globally as a solar energy, electric car, and energy storage expert. Zach has long-term investments in TSLA, FSLR, SPWR, SEDG, & ABB — after years of covering solar and EVs, he simply has a lot of faith in these particular companies and feels like they are good cleantech companies to invest in.

    Interested in seeing if you could add a dedicated section that tracks newly installed, previously installed, and planned solar/wind/geothermal installations. I hope that makes enough sense. 

    • hmm, good one… have to see how possible that seems…

      actually interested in have “Solar Facts” and “Wind Facts” pages (and “Hydro Facts” that would include Wave, Tidal, etc), but will take a lot of work to set up and maintain and I’m not sure yet what factors we’ll be able to actually include in there (if we can get those pages up).

      thanks for the nudge & idea

        I was almost imagining like some kind of simple table for each (Solar, Wind, Geothermal) , listing out each installation…  Each installation (whether its planned or existing) would display the max capacity, and allow users to click on the name to find more information about that particular installation. 
        You could try to streamline much of the process by creating some type of collaborative effort from users, in which we would be able to submit installations new/old/planned ( you would maybe filter those submissions to put a check on redundancy)…… Here’s an example of what I’m speaking of, but it isn’t kept up to date, doesn’t give out much information, and this is only for Texas:

        • i know some market research companies track this sort of thing, but not sure what they show/offer — will have to check those out first.

  • How about intermittency problem of renewable energy?

  • Interested in more information on Germany’s energy revolution (from both  policy and technology perspectives), and Passivhaus and other ultra high performance building standards.

    Possibly covering or creating an entire section for schools that are creating green programs or other things like that 

    • hmm, like that.

    • Bob_Wallace

      On a different thread someone just linked a site that is working on schools/jobs in the wind industry.

    Car  and highway issues can be adequately covered in Gas 02 if it can be included as a standalone Gadget.
