Amy Francetic & Joan Michelson at ARPA-E Summit 2013The front lines of the clean energy economy are fascinating, brutal and potentially very lucrative.

Listen to one of the masters at growing clean energy start-ups, Amy Francetic of the Clean Energy Trust, discuss how it all comes together and CET’s $100 million partnership with Argonne National Laboratory.

She spoke with GCR host Joan Michelson at the ARPA-E Summit in Washington, DC recently. Much of her advice is timeless.


“Make sure that your own financial basis is in a good place…(and) take advantage of opportunities that are presented to you…be open…Don’t let what you can do now stop you” (from other ways to use what you know and can do). Shelly Porges on Green Connections Radio podcast
