Energy Innovators

As a follow up to an earlier blog about big business pulling money out of fossil fuels and turning to greener pastures to generate profit, the Bloomberg New Energy Finance annual summit in New York shows concrete examples of exactly when and why the energy sector is moving in this direction. This article includes charts and graphs that illustrate how, despite falling oil and gas prices, the business of building sustainable energy systems has been (and will continue to) move forward with renewable energy and technologies. It also address the gap between what is currently being spent on minimizing the effects of climate change, and what it will really take to reach the goals put forth by the IEA in their own report. It is possible however, with the right motivation, encouragement and engagement of our business and political leaders, to meet their solar energy dependency goal (and perhaps even surpass it).
