The Future of “Clean” Energy

The Future of “Clean” Energy

Murray Rosenblith
Co-Manager, New Alternatives Fund
Bloomberg New Energy Finance predicts that two-thirds of the world’s power will be generated by renewable resources by 2050. This projection is based on the continuing growth of new renewable power generation projects, primarily wind and solar. Conditions have certainly changed since New Alternatives Fund entered the investment world in 1982. Our Fund’s approach has always been to consider the broad sector of energy and related environmental areas like clean water, clean air, and naturally grown and organic food. Energy is not just the production of electric power we also see conservation and efficiency playing major roles. Read More

Decarbonize, Decentralize and Democratize: Investing in a More Just Energy Future

Jess Brooks
Chief Development Officer, Sunwealth
At Sunwealth, we invest in a sustainable future by financing diverse renewable energy projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, strengthen local resilience and bring the benefits of renewable energy to under-served communities. Since 2014, we have financed over 70 solar installations on rooftops and in open spaces. We are poised to invest over $12 million in solar energy and storage projects in 2018, more than double our 2017 investment. We have a 2019 pipeline of over $40 million in new solar projects that will provide 20 megawatts of solar power across 50 communities. Read More
Strengthening Clean Energy with a Diverse Workforce

Strengthening Clean Energy with a Diverse Workforce

Kristen Graf
Executive Director, WRISE
According to NREL, renewable electricity generation from technologies that are commercially available today, in combination with a more flexible grid, is adequate to supply 80 percent of total U.S. electricity generation in 2050. Now is the time to take a close look at the pipeline of potential clean energy workers ensuring that we are bringing the best minds and diverse perspectives to the table. Prioritizing diversity both in terms of race and gender are important components for building a successful company. Research from McKinsey makes it increasingly clear that companies with a diverse workforce perform better financially. Read More

Clean Energy Investing: Changing Lives, Changing the World

Maxwell Roe
Business Development, Clean Power USA
Renewable Energy was the most-added source of new power generation in 2017. In an increasing number of regions, clean energy is the cheapest source of new electricity. Confidence in the clean energy sector can be seen in the large commitments made by major banking institutions. The public and our investors are grasping the reality of a renewable energy future. Rooftop solar panels are commonplace and are required on new homes in some cities in California. Solar photovoltaic installers and wind turbine service technicians have become the nation’s two fastest-growing occupations. Read More
The Future Is Decentralized

The Future Is Decentralized

David Breecker
Founder and Managing Director, Microgrid Systems Laboratory
In every part of the world, from the industrialized to the emerging economies, energy systems are shifting from a highly centralized architecture (i.e., large generation plants, long transmission lines, and one-way flows of energy) to a decentralized, distributed network model. This model takes the form of microgrids (or “mini-grids” in Africa and Asia), small, integrated systems capable of autonomous operation; and as Distributed Energy Resource Management Systems and Virtual Power Plants, as ways of making the existing bulk power grid more flexible. Some compare this to the advent of “the internet of energy.” Read More
