This morning began with funding opportunities workshop at the DC convention center. We heard from the venture capital investment and the government side of the alternative energy investment coin. The Recovery Act remains the main government funding stream through various sources until further climate or energy legislation is advanced. Private venture capital has additional opportunities with companies like SAIL who focus on cleantech or greentech investments that include alternate fuels. Government loans have issues with intellectual property rights.
