Now that I’ve gotten your attention, I would also like to take this opportunity to share a video clip of a discussion/interview involving two leaders of our energy world, Mr. Bill Gates and Secretary of Department of Energy Steven Chu in discussing how America can meet and prosper from 21st century global energy challenges (moderated by John Podesta during the ARPA-E2012 Summit), below.


 

I would also like to share another important incentive policy for renewable/solar energy, Feed-In-Tariff (please click) that would help to speed up our transition into renewable energy age.
