Moving away from fossil fuels to renewables, and low-carbon energy sources to reduce carbon emissions is essential. Renewable energy is all around us, is cheaper, healthier, and makes sense for business, society and planet. About $5.9 trillion was spent on subsidizing the fossil fuel industry in 2020, while about $4 trillion a year needs to be invested in renewable energy until 2030.
How do we price health and environmental damages or gains? The question is simple, to be or not to be extinct …
The upfront cost can be daunting but investments in renewable energy will pay off. According to the UN, the reduction of pollution and climate impacts alone could save the world up to $4.2 trillion per year by 2030.
There are efficient, reliable renewable technologies that with a diversification of power supply options, improve resilience and energy security. In certain countries the renewables, are now the primary source of energy.
Through our work with impact focused networks and initiatives we see a number of “mainstream” and small-scale, truly innovative solutions.
We have been involved in energy transition-related opportunities from regulatory, R&D, feasibility studies, constructions phases to project financing, M&A, joint venture or collaboration.
