· How can donors support bringing renewable and clean energy to developing areas? How is this a promising opportunity for our planet’s future and global development?
Access to clean energy is #Solvable. Jules Kortenhorst argues that we can reframe the lack of access to power in the developing world as an opportunity to skip the usual trajectory and introduce clean energy sources in the immediate future.
Jules Kortenhorst is the Chief Executive Officer of Rocky Mountain Institute, an independent, nonprofit “think-and-do” tank which advances market-based solutions that transform global energy use to create a clean, prosperous, and secure future. Prior to Rocky Mountain Institute, Kortenorst was the founding CEO of the European Climate Foundation, the largest philanthropic organization dedicated to policy development and advocacy on climate change in Europe.
