New England cleantech execs and investors head for DC

The Boston Globe | Scott Kirsner

Given the intense budget negotiations taking place in Washington this week, it might not be the ideal time to drop by the Capitol to talk about the future of the energy industry. Regardless, tomorrow's the start of the third annual "DC Fly In" organized by the New England Clean Energy Council.

Council members will meet with House science & technology staffers; the Republican Policy Committee; the Democratic Steering & Outreach Committee; and Senate majority leader Harry Reid's office. And they'll get face time with Department of Energy reps as well, including staffers from the department's ARPA-E group (the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Energy, which has showered Massachusetts start-ups with money.)

Among the NECEC council members who are participating in this year's fly-in are Mike Decelle of Sun Catalytix; Barry Fougere of BigBelly Solar; Tim Healy of EnerNOC; John Joyce of Ambient Corporation; Jim Matheson of Flagship Ventures; and Dhiraj Malkani of Rockport Capital.
