Video Interview: Mike Kerwin on Gaining Green Technology Acceptance

Many businesses are finding out the hard way that going green faces significant barriers to implementation from government agencies and utilities slow to accept technology change.

What makes Kerwin’s interview encouraging are his examples of success like the Gap’s 10 year success having a living roof atop their building.

Mike Kerwin is a tremendous resource on both green building experiences and how to build a brand presence in the growing and maturing market for green technology solutions.

  1. It blows my mind that bureaucrats can be so evil! Yes, it's actually evil to fail to understand this kind of thing and to not do anything about it. Especially in San Francisco. Bravo to Mike for sticking with it!

  2. Thanks Yuri for saying “bravo” to Mike. I wonder readers, do you have other examples of barriers to the adoption of green technologies???
