Powerhouse venture capitalist Vinod Kholsa is about to close on $1 billion in new capital for his green-oriented venture capital firm, Becky Buckman at Forbes reports.

I interviewed Vinod last fall on the campus of MIT at the EmergingTech conference where he was a speaker.  He speaks about the importance of "clean tech" and the scope of investment opportunities.

I have republished the interview today.
