Nol Browne of Fraunhofer-MIT on HighTechFever

I interviewed MIT Sloan alumnus and MIT Energy Conference Founder Nolan Browne on my HighTechFever TV show tonight, discussing his latest role as Managing Director of the emergent Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems with MIT. The glorious potential of all things Solar & Sustainable should be enough to inspire us here, but I personally am especially motivated by the key faculty, researchers, and other talent in this sector at the Institute. Among the exciting things the Center are up to include: Creating best-of-breed energy-efficient structures and building technologies, reducing the installed cost of solar by one-third, creating a rapid-prototyping laboratory to accelerate research, development and commercialization of energy efficient devices.
