I’m in Germany for a week for a large cleantech tour of the country. As a result, I’m not sure if I’ll have time to do any more than the bare essentials, so I’m doing a quick news roundup right now and I’m also including a list of some top cleantech sites I think you should follow (down on the bottom). Keep an eye on those sites this week in order to not miss any excellent stories!
