Nol Browne ~ Fraunhofer & Sustainable Energy

Delightful to reconnect with Nol Browne, the founding Managing Director of the Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems (CSE) here in Cambridge, MA on my MaximizingProgress.tv show! Nol and I have known each other since his time in the MIT Sloan MBA program where he founded the epic MIT Energy Conference, the premier student-run energy innovation venue of its kind. Since graduation, Nol went on to work in the solar industry and has for the last two years taken on this R&D innovation leadership role. Fraunhofer CSE is...
"...a non-profit applied research and development laboratory dedicated to the commercialization of clean energy technologies. CSE engages in collaborative research and development with private companies, government entities, and academic institutions, performing research that broadly benefits firms, industries, and society. These partnerships take a wide variety of forms, including confidential co-development programs, third-party technology validation, and joint applications for grant programs."
Their latest achievement is becoming the Research Team Leader for Building America, an industry-driven research effort sponsored by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to accelerate advanced building energy technologies in homes.
