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.

A Volkswagen T2 Camper Van’s Electric Conversion — Part 5

November 2nd, 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 information on his rebuilds with CleanTechnica in his own words. It has been somewhat chronological, but is this chapter the final one? Read on and make a wild guess


My Quest For Net Zero & Beyond With Tesla Model 3 — Part 5

October 18th, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

I have now crossed the 30,000 miles (49,000 km) milestone in my 2019 Tesla Model 3, in just over 16 months, and in October I reached one full year on a set of Michelin CrossClimate+ tires, which will give some precise range data, so this is a perfect time for an update


While Decisionmakers Quarrel, Danes Just Buy Electric Vehicles

September 20th, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about a report that the so-called Automobile Commission of Denmark published after 18 months of number crunching with the purpose of guiding the government to accomplish its goal of drastically cutting transportation emissions in the country


A Million EVs On Danish Roads By 2030 Is Impossible, According To New Report

September 8th, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

The Danish taxation system on vehicles is one of the world's most expensive, complicated, and confusing of its kind. It has roots reaching a century back when cars var considered a pure luxury item, and not something you would ever own for the purpose of running a business or commute to work

Boosting The Financing Of Local Distributed Renewable Energy Actors In Africa — Oil Change International Shows How It Can Be Done

July 21st, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

Renewable energy produced through off-grid and mini-grid wind and solar installations – called distributed renewable energy – has consistently been identified as the most effective, affordable, and resilient way to deliver electricity services to rural areas without access. However, only about 1-2% of financing for electricity in Africa is currently flowing to distributed renewable energy


Electric Vehicle World Tour: An Eminent Epic VW T3 Camper Van’s Journey

You might have noticed our small series about a UK-based company called eDub services that converts gorgeous VW T2 Camper Vans to electric propulsion, but where do you go when you have made one for yourself? Well, one simple option is to go around the world, of course! But how will you charge in the deserts of Kazakhstan? The sun is the solution!

Can A Government Be Held Accountable If Climate Legislation Is Violated?

July 12th, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

If you think about the goal of the Paris Agreement to halve global carbon emissions in the next 10 years to keep the world on track to limit temperature rise to 1.5C, it in itself might seem, and frankly might actually be, impossible. But you don't get points for not trying, we are all in this together, and the sooner a small country like Denmark can show concrete results from functional climate legislation, larger countries just might follow


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
