Edwin R. Stafford MBA ’89 has won the Seven Summits Award Best Mountain/Environmental Film at the Mountain Film Festival in Mammoth Lakes, California, for his co-produced documentary entitled, Wind Uprising. The film chronicles Utah’s four-year struggle to establish the state’s first commercial wind project at the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon, about 50 miles south of Salt Lake City. Describing the story from the entrepreneurs’ perspective, the documentary highlights the social, political, and market barriers hurdled by the developers and the lessons learned from jumpstarting a new cleantech industry in the state. Edwin is a marketing professor and co-director of the Center for the Market Diffusion of Renewable Energy and Clean Technology at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business, Utah State University, Logan, Utah (www.cleantech.usu.edu).
