“If we find ways of generating and storing power from renewable resources we will make the problem with oil and coal and other carbon [-based fuels] disappear.”
– Sir David Attenborough
President Obama interviewed David Attenborough recently and this line uttered by the great naturalist sums up so succinctly I think the big picture of renewable energy and it’s great messaging.
So often talk around renewables is just around generation. Talking about generation and storage hand in hand though is far more powerful and needs to be done much more because people understand energy storage in a very real, day-to-day sense.
Such a clear and powerful – and indeed illuminating – statement.
You can watch the interview here – it’s pretty great. The quote is around 19:26.
