Best of the BERC blog 2012

From RIO +20 to the Brightsource IPO to the presidential election, the energy and resources sector has been as dynamic as ever this year both at home and abroad.

Here we revisit some of our favorite articles published in the last year, selected by the blog team themselves and listed in chronological order:

Finally, let’s not forget the terrific contributions of BERC’s department liaisons to “Department Spotlight”, a monthly series summarizing energy-related activities happening all around Berkeley. Please join us in thanking everyone who contributed to the vibrancy of the BERC website and newsletter this year.
