Rothstein Joins Clean Energy Council

8/24/09

Peter Rothstein, a former entrepreneur in residence at Flagship Ventures in Cambridge, MA, has joined the New England Clean Energy Council as full-time senior vice president, the Cambridge-based organization announced today. At the council, Rothstein will focus on the Clean Energy Innovation Consortia, a project he launched to push for the creation of the “clean energy clusters”—tighter collaboration between universities, entrepreneurs, venture funders, and government agencies—proposed by Congressmen Edward Markey and Henry Waxman in an energy bill passed this year by the U.S. House of Representatives. “Having Peter formerly join the Council in this senior role greatly deepens our ability to impact clean energy research and commercialization at a national level, and accelerate the growth of the New England clean energy cluster,” council president Nick d’Arbeloff said in a statement.
