Energy Entrepreneurs Can Unlock the Solution to Energy Poverty

 

Before the lightbulb, man went from burning wood, to paraffin and whale oil, to kerosene. When Thomas Edison and his associates successfully built the first incandescent electric lightbulb in 1879, they did so with the goal of creating a high resistance system that would require far less electrical power than was used by existing arc lamps. The role of technological innovation in that context was to maximize the output from a specific fuel source to meet our energy needs. Since then, the evolution of lighting has made it cheaper, more convenient, and more efficient—freeing up time and resources. Enhanced agricultural productivity could not have happened without innovation in energy systems like tractors, irrigation, machinery for drying, and food processing.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Hard to believe in the 21st century, 1.3 billion people lack access to electricity today. They rely on burning wood, candles, and kerosene lanterns for light.

A Circular Economy: Why the Next Packaging Will Be Grown, NOT Manufactured

A Circular Economy: Why the Next Packaging Will Be Grown, NOT Manufactured | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

Infinite economic growth is at odds with our finite planet, and this obsession with endless growth is driving us towards ecological catastrophe. I’ve just returned from the annual World Economic Forum meeting, and this reality has never been so clear to me. The forum brings together economists, but also activists, business leaders, humanitarians and technologists.

 

Sharla Shults's insight:

Something sizzlin' to think about:  What if we could live in a society where everything—and I mean everything—was recycled using a system that requires no electricity and runs forever?
