Press for General Catalyst

AlwaysOn is proud to announce the first annual Power Players West list, honoring the champions of entrepreneurship who are helping the Global Silicon Valley dominate today's technology marketplace.

Taking advantage of abundant energy in the nation, such as wind and solar, and making profits, with Hemant Taneja, General Catalyst Partners managing director.

Americans are gloomy about future costs for energy and the vast majorities are taking steps to reduce their personal energy costs, but they see economic benefits to emerging energy-saving technologies that they think will create jobs and strengthen the economy, according to a new survey released today.

Hemant Taneja, the venture capitalist who helped create the New England Clean Energy Council in 2007, is involved with a new trade group that makes its debut this week: the Advanced Energy Economy. The Washington- and Palo Alto- based organization hopes to knit together state and regional associations, and serve as a new national voice for the cleantech industry.
