About Jesper Berggreen

Jesper Berggreen Jesper had his perspective on the world expanded vastly after having attended primary school in rural Africa in the early 1980s. And while educated a computer programmer and laboratory technician, working with computers and lab-robots at the institute of forensic medicine in Aarhus, Denmark, he never forgets what life is like having nothing. Thus it became obvious for him that technological advancement is necessary for the prosperity of all humankind, sharing this one vessel we call planet earth. However, technology has to be smart, clean, sustainable, widely accessible, and democratic in order to change the world for the better. Writing about clean energy, electric transportation, energy poverty, and related issues, he gets the message through to anyone who wants to know better. Jesper is founder of Lifelike.dk.

The Adventures Of Mr. Me & His Noble Steed Colin — The Norwegian Wave Trophy Dog Mode Campers

October 18th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

Due to the positive response I got on the weird fact/fiction format I used in my delusional Frankfurt roadtrip story, I figured why not shamelessly spin that idea and try this fun way of getting information across by bringing to life the character theme that JR250 so brilliantly constructed about my Model 3 (named Colin) and me in the comments of that story, namely: The adventures of Mr. Me and his noble steed Colin. 


Will The Forthcoming New Danish Climate Law Boost A Carbon Tax?

October 18th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

In the beginning of September the newly elected Danish government, comprised of the parties Socialdemokratiet, Radikale, Socialistisk Folkeparti, and Enhedslisten, started its work on a new climate law. Denmark already has a climate law in place from the former Venstre led government, but it was not overly ambitious and not legally binding


The Big Auto Fairy Tale Of Doom: The Ugly Duckling Of Audi That May Never Become A Swan

October 12th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

It seemed to me that Audi (under the VAG Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft) with the extravagant technical achievement of the A2 had made a profound statement of peak efficiency of the internal combustion engine that it seemed impossible to surpass, and the next big surprise from this respected automobile giant would be an electric long-range model. I was certain I would be trading in my diesel A2 with an electric A2 soon enough


How The Long Drive To Frankfurt For IAA 2019 Made Me Talk To My Tesla Model 3

September 29th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

A few days ago I told you what I thought was going on at the IAA 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, and that was quite an eye opener for me. One single model stole the show. The world of automobiles will see serious change next year, when the VW ID.3 and other similar models hit the tarmac with their wheels spinning so fast the fossil fuel slurping dinosaurs won't know what hit them


IAA 2019 — Thoughts On The Future Of German Compact Family Cars

September 24th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

The 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, IAA (Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung), was a strange and different experience compared to the last time I was there. The road trip in itself was a +1000 mile long and very satisfying experience in my Tesla Model 3, which I will dedicate another post to cover. In the following article, though, I will try to put into words the puzzling buzz of change in the realm of passenger cars from a consumer perspective


New Report Reveals The Most Energy-Intensive Industries In Denmark

September 22nd, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

In a new report, based on the newest Danish statistics, Thea Gehrchen from GreenMatch.dk has summed up just how much energy the different industries in Denmark consume, which comes in quite handy while we wait for our new government to release a new proposal for a national climate law for the country, with binding targets no less


Extreme Corner Case For Autonomous Cars — Giants Riding On Cars Down Hills!

September 9th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

So, imagine you are driving along in your fancy high-tech car, minding your own business, with your yet-to-be-feature-complete full self-driving software activated, and suddenly the car slams the brakes to a full stop, like a donkey that had an epiphany that what it was doing just didn't serve any purpose and therefor just refused to move any further. The silicon brain of your clever-as-a-donkey-robo-car just slammed on the brakes because it saw this through one of its cameras


The Fight On Climate Issues In Danish Elections Results In Greenest Agenda Ever

July 1st, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

With the UK signing into law a pledge to a net zero carbon polluting society, it is now a historical fact that Denmark did not make the title of green leader of the world in time. However, the country might still get the chance to be a prominent runner up. As the leading nation in wind energy, we should have gone all the way, decades ago. But really, who cares who's in the lead, as long as something is getting done! Let's hope it's not too late


Kenyan — Danish Permacultural Project: Vijana Wetu

June 30th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

Vijana Wetu is a unique Cultural Cooperation Project between a youth group at Victoria Lake in Western Kenya and a group of enthusiasts in Denmark. The words are swahili and it means "Our Youth." I met the founder of this group one day at a special event in a very special village


Why Is Floating Solar Emerging So Quickly, & Where Is It Going?

June 29th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

For anyone with an interest in renewable energy, it's hard to miss the rising interest in floating solar over the last couple of months. Tenders, project announcements, and newly delivered plants pop-up on a weekly, if not daily basis. Last week’s World Bank Market Report stated that we’ve reached 1.3 GWp capacity
