I shared my own interview for CNBC and Harvard Business Review’s “Energy Opportunities” series about a month ago, but the series has a few more that I’ve been meaning to highlight. One of them is the one above, which features Dr Jeremy Leggett, Founder and Chairman of SolarCentury, talking about the viability and bright future of micro-generation, renewable energy, solar, the fact that solar is already a very viable energy source around the world, and his estimate that solar will reach grid parity in the UK by 2013 (not even taking externalities such as health costs, national security costs, and environmental costs into account).
He also nails what’s stalling faster clean energy growth — out-of-date thinking about energy sources and lobbying by other energy industries. Check it out here:
I'm the director of CleanTechnica, the most popular clean energy website in the world, and Planetsave, a leading green and science news site. I've been covering green news of various sorts since 2008, and I've been especially focused on solar energy, electric vehicles, bicycling, and wind energy for the past few years. You can also find my work on Scientific American, Reuters, Think Progress, GE's ecomagination site, several sites in the Important Media network, & many other places.
