Cleantech Fellows Institute Expands Program and Gets New Name

New name reflects expansion of advanced energy technology curriculum

The Cleantech Fellows Institute recently announced that it has changed its name to the Energy Fellows Institute. The Energy Fellows Institute is the nation’s first targeted program to educate experienced entrepreneurs and executives in technology sectors of the advanced energy industry. The program promotes the intersection of experienced executives and serial entrepreneurs with new ventures and technologies that ultimately create jobs and grow the advanced energy sector.

“This is an exciting change for us,” said Steven Berens, executive director of the Energy Fellows Institute. “In working through our curriculum and with insight from our partners and sponsors, we realized that the program entails much more than just cleantech, it is a study of the entire advanced energy ecosystem. By redefining ourselves under a broader energy umbrella, we have the opportunity to focus on all aspects of advanced energy while maintaining our concentration on the cleantech industry.”

Advanced energy encompasses a broad range of products and services that constitute the best available technologies for meeting energy needs today and tomorrow. Advanced energy technologies bridge the gap between currently available energy technologies and those in development that will move the global energy economy towards clean, sustainable energy. The Energy Fellows Institute will focus on these transformative and innovative advanced energy technologies throughout the 2013 curriculum.
