Energy Efficiency & Distributed Renewables Will Kill Energy Suppliers
January 18th, 2015 by Zachary Shahan
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and Financial Times (FT) held an excellent panel discussion tonight on technology, innovation, business, and the future of energy. It was a wonderful event, and I have several great clips from it to share in the coming days and weeks. To start with, here’s a short one from Michael Liebreich:
If you are not a video person, the essence of the clip is in the title: “Energy Efficiency & Distributed Renewables Will Kill Energy Suppliers.” I think that captures it well enough.
In case you are not already aware, Michael Liebreich was the founder of New Energy Finance (which was in 2009 sold to Bloomberg L.P and became Bloomberg New Energy Finance), was the CEO of Bloomberg New Energy Finance for years before switching to Chairman of the Advisory Board in 2014, and is a former member of the Zayed Future Energy Prize selection panel, among many others things.
Full Disclosure: My trip to and accommodation in Abu Dhabi for the Zayed Future Energy Prize, World Future Energy Summit, and other Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week events is being covered by Masdar. That said, I have full editorial control over the work and am even publishing it without feedback. I am only covering things that I find very interesting or important, and that I think others will find interesting or important.
