During past decade, more and more investment dollars had been pouring into the renewable energies, with good reasons, for much technological advancements in renewables had been and will continue to be developing in the next two decades, during our necessary transition into a clean energy world.
Investors have been pouring more money than ever into renewable energies such as solar and wind. WSJ looks at how the pandemic, lower energy costs and global politics have driven the rally–and whether it can last, in the video “More Money Is Flowing Into Green Energy Than Ever Before. Here’s Why, WSJ“, below:
During this pandemic, Renewable energy (Solar, Wind, Hydro) dethrones Coal to produce more energy in the United States. For the first time in renewable has consistently been at the top to produce more energy continuously for 40 days straight. The previous record was 9 days last year. By 2025, majority of states will not only move away from coal, but also employ huge number of people in the renewable energy sector thus creating more jobs, in the video “Renewable Now Generate More Power than Coal Amidst the Pandemic in the U.S.“, below:
How will green energy change our future? What will our future look like with green energy? The growth of green energy goes together with change. Our future will not only include green energy, but our future will also be shaped by it. What will the future sustainable world look like? That is the big question, now that the global transition towards sustainable energy is gaining momentum. For the growth of sustainable energy involves a lot more changes than just the color of the power supplied to our homes. How will we build, how will our mobility be impacted, and will energy, one day, be free? Just like the Internet turned out to have an unforeseen influence on all kinds of industries, from music to taxi businesses, the transition towards sustainable energy will also rise beyond the energy sector. And with a much wider impact than is now assumed. But we know surprisingly little about what that world will look like, and how the people in it will live, work and move around. Expectations are that, by the 2050s, two-thirds of the electricity generated globally will be sustainable. The Netherlands is ambitious too. But what kind of world are we heading for, really, with all these sustainable measures? In partial areas, the future is clear: a massive stop to the use of gas, lots of windmills and solar panels, and perhaps a self-driving car outside. But, for now, there is no wider vision of what the sustainable new world will look like. What will the world be like once energy has become practically free? What will the impact of the transition towards sustainable energy be on the balance of power in the world?In the video “How green energy will change our future – Docu“, below:

Heidi Finskas shares KLP’s positive experience with combining private and public investments, so-called blended finance, in renewable energy projects in developing countries. By partnering up, we can turn billions to trillions and make the sustainable development goals a reality. Heidi Finskas is Vice President for Corporate Responsibility at KLP, which is Norway’s largest pension company. Sustainability in the finance industry has been her focus throughout her career, and she is responsible for the corporate responsibility strategy in KLP’s investments and operations. She is a co-founder of Norsif, the Norwegian association for responsible investment. Finskas holds a Master’s Degree in Political Science from the University of Oslo, and a Bachelor’s Degree from Helsinki University. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community, in the video “Investing in renewable energy in developing countries, Heidi Finskas, TEDxSkift“, below:
