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 and a long-term investor in Tesla, Ørsted, and Vestas.

Silence Before The Storm At Chibwe Primary School — An Example Of Rural African Energy Development

July 9th, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

You often hear about the rapid technological developments in African countries like Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, and others. CleanTechnica writer Remeredzai Joseph Kuhudzai keeps us updated on the potential of the electrical vehicle in the growing African middle class and the potential of microgrids in more rural areas. But the development is somewhat slower in terms of energy and information technology in very remote rural areas


Tesla CyberVan — Gigantic Untapped Potential

July 8th, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

The development around Tesla these days is kind of mind boggling. Shares are soaring in sheer anticipation of a profitable Q2, and the hype around the company is underlined by red satin shorts going on sale with a not-so-subtle middle finger to anyone who has not believed in Tesla the last decade or so


Are Tesla Owners Naive Or Tech Savvy? Maybe Both, But Mostly In Love

July 4th, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

I recently covered the J.D. Power 2020 Initial Quality Study (IQS) in which Tesla was represented for the first time, and in this report Tesla scored an absolute low due to many alleged quality issues, but the data behind this rating was not straightforward. To conclude on the discussions on this particular report, I think

June 20th, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

This series is the result of conversations with Kit Lacey about his entrepreneurship in converting classic cars to electric propulsion. Kit's UK-based company is called eDub Services. I encouraged Kit to share the concrete and chronological information on his rebuilds with CleanTechnica in his own words


Volvo 240 vs Tesla Model 3 — The Ultimate Daily Drivers Of Past & Present

June 13th, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

When I placed my reservation for the Tesla Model 3 back in April 2016, I had not imagined I would have to wait that long for the car. During the wait, after having leased a few other EVs, I happened to buy an old bricked (as in, dead engine) and brick-shaped Volvo 240 out of sheer desperation. The idea was to ditch the internal combustion engine that had stalled back in 2012 due to a faulty thermostat and left to rot, and replace it with a nice electric kit


Volkswagen T2 Camper Van Electric Conversion — Part 1

June 1st, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

A couple of months ago I introduced you to a UK company that converts classic cars to electric propulsion. The company, named eDub Services, was founded by a young man named Kit Lacey, and since my piece on his business he and I have been in conversation about this fascinating field of entrepreneurship


The Climate, The Queen, And The Deep Blue Sky

April 14th, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

Her majesty the Queen Margrethe II of Denmark says she is not convinced that human activity is the primary cause of the current climate change? Nevertheless, it just might be the work on the green energy transition that most effectively will get us back on track after the corona crisis. Experts and organizations now want a green emergency plan for restoring Denmark's economy, regardless of the Queens assumptions I presume


Maybe You Should Buy Tesla [TSLA] Stock Instead Of Toilet Paper (Video)

March 23rd, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

I'm one of the extremely lucky ones on this planet to have been sent home with full pay during this coronavirus pandemic. I sit in the quiet isolation of my home and watch the world through my digital tools, and I'm puzzled by what I see — on many levels — ranging from toilet paper to trading stocks
