Clifton spent a big part of his career working in the residential building and housing business. For example he has worked with energy related technology with regards to buildings, utility and land development. He also started a net zero energy factory for housing companies that were addressing the needs for houses for the people that lost their homes in Hurricane Katrina and in Greensburg, Kansas.
I have always been a problem solver. I see macro level problems and I always had some clarity around how to address or fix those issues. In Cleantech, just watching the shift and the change really is started with demand response. So the mismatch between the utility generation and times of great use and demand was really one of the problems I was trying to solve.
