“In order to make valuable change, cut emissions to pre-industrial levels and avoid irreversible changes to our planet, both individuals, companies and countries need to do a radical shift in consumption of, and the way we consume energy. There is not one right path to the solution, but rather a combination of big and small changes on a personal, market and structural level. I see energy efficiency, the phase out of fossil fuels, employment of renewable energy and the use of new flexible energy carriers as hydrogen to be the most important pieces of the puzzle that is the future of sustainable energy behavior.”
