Designing a Big Push on Renewables

On May 9, at the invitation of Anders Wijkman, I had the honor of being one of the opening speakers at the World Renewable Energy Congress 2011, which was being held in Linköping, Sweden.

Just a few days before, I had gotten the green light from a UN colleague and client to go out publicly with the following idea, which was born out of my work for them last year:  to create an independent (non-UN) global campaign in support of dramatically increasing the world’s level of investment in renewable energy.

You can download the text of my speech (and slides) here:

I’ll update and expand on this post soon …
