Funding Energy Futures
We like to get more people thinking and acting for a low carbon, clean energy future, so we don’t hesitate to bring to readers’ attention plans by the rich and famous (Warren Buffett, for example) or the views of energy experts like Nick Butler, as to where the world is heading and the need for a multinational approach to energy investment. For our part, we continue in a determined fashion to invest in viable renewable energy projects in the region – Indonesia this time – and recognize the plans of others to collaborate, like The Blue Circle and Annex working together to leverage each other’s experience and network. We also want to show that things are happening elsewhere in the world that should give us heart: more money going into wave energy in Australia, for example, and Singapore’s Atlantis Resources moving ahead with tidal energy projects in Europe. It is fair to say too that Singapore is starting to get recognition, not only for its excellent research work in clean energy, but also as “the place most likely to succeed” as a centre for funding a clean energy future for Asia and further afield.
