Traditional to Alternative: the evolving business model
According to DNV GL’s Energy Transition Outlook 2019 report, the world needs ten times more solar power to limit global warming by 2030.
In this episode, Gavin Adda, CEO of Distributed Generation at Total, explores the changing role of traditional energy companies, with many now diversifying and looking at renewables to help them reduce their carbon emissions, meet changing consumer demands and address new government policies on climate change.
With solar power playing a major role in this transition, Gavin explains that global corporates such as Google and Apple are recognizing the benefits to clean energy and starting to put pressure on their wider supply chain. This, alongside cheaper prices for energy such as solar, is helping developing markets to transition more quickly than ever before.
