The Breakthrough Energy Coalition (Bill Gates, George Soros, Richard Branson og Michael Bloomberg et al.) is committed to helping accelerate the cycle of innovation through investment, partnership, and thought leadership.
Technology will help solve our energy issues, feed the world, and produce goods without emitting greenhouse gases. The urgency of climate change and the energy needs in the poorest parts of the world require an aggressive global program for zero-emission energy innovation. The new model will be a partnership between governments, research institutions, and investors. Scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs can invent and scale the innovative technologies that will limit the impact of climate change while providing affordable and reliable energy to everyone.
The existing system of basic research, clean energy investment, regulatory frameworks, and subsidies fails to mobilize sufficient investment in truly transformative energy solutions for the future.
We can’t wait for the system to change through normal cycles.
