Cleantech goes far beyond solar power, according to Shawn Severson. As a managing director of cleantech research with ThinkEquity in San Francisco, he finds mainstream companies poised to cash in on common-sense technologies that save energy and money. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Shawn makes the case that cleantech is as much about saving money as it is about saving the environment.
