"A carbon credit is a financial instrument at the end of the day. It's a commodity that you trade, you hedge, you forward, you use to meet your obligation of emission reduction."

- Ed Heslop, CEO of Environmental Credit Corporation

In addition to Heslop, other entrepreneurs and experts have spoken with eClips about developments within the energy sector. Interested in hearing more? Check out comments from Daniel Goldman and Daniel Kammen as well.
