Serial tech CEO, TED speaker, author, podcast host, and founder of the Freeing Energy Project, Bill Nussey talks with Laurie Stone about his new book Freeing Energy and the pivotal role the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) has played in his journey into the clean energy industry (read here).
Here are a few highlights from the article:
“This book doesn’t talk about climate change. There are hundreds of books written about climate change. The world doesn’t need another climate change book. The book leads with a dollars and cents mindset—a perspective nearly everyone agrees with. I also talk a lot about families, local businesses, and communities in the book. Because that’s who benefits from these small-scale systems.”
“I’ve been involved in disruptive industry-scale shifts my whole career, and that’s what renewables are now. Solar and batteries are transforming the power sector kicking and screaming—from a fuels-based business model to one that I’m familiar with, which is one that is based on the economics of technology.”
The Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit organization of experts working to accelerate the transition to clean energy. Their mission is to transform the global energy system to “secure a clean, prosperous, zero-carbon future for all.”
