The third industrial revolution

It’s no secret renewable energy is taking over the world…and as invested as I am in this area, I learn something new and exciting almost every day; such as the fact computer giant Apple has built the largest privately held solar park in the world and are planning a new carbon neutral, solar powered headquarters in Silicon Valley that will provide all their massive data storage energy needs and ongoing power for 13,000 employees.  Oh, and they’ve also patented a solar powered laptop…I look forward to working out in the Melbourne sunshine!

However, we here in Australia are at risk of being left behind and are losing our energy ‘brains trust’ businesspeople to the US where renewables talent is valued.  Why?  Well, you’re better off watching the excellent Four Corners story here.
