Strategy failure in cleantech

October 25, 2012

Cleantech has seen its share of high profile failures over the past year.  The bankruptcy of solar cell company Solyndra has been the most public, but there are many others. This has led many to say that the sector is immature, others to say it is doomed or plagued by fickle or unstable state subsidies. It is also true that quite often, Cleantech firms bank on (somebody) introducing changes in infrastructure that need significant momentum (and time) to take hold. But surely Cleantech CEOs are smart people, so the reason they fail must be slightly more complex, perhaps? I am starting a new research project on strategic failure in the cleantech sector. I am looking to identify strategies, companies, people, technologies, structures, and mechanisms that contribute to failed firms. Contact me, see MIT Sloan Experts: Strategy Failure in Cleantech.
