Bernie Bulkin, Executive Chairman of K3Solar provides a whistle stop tour of the major challenges and opportunities in cleantech with a focus on solar, 5G and more!
Bernie Bulkin is currently Executive Chairman ofK3Solar. We asked Bernie to share his #GameChanger ideas after hearing his fascinating talk at the Cleantech Venture Day in London. The topics covered in this podcast include the need and future of solar energy and its role in supporting health and education in developing economies. We also discuss the challenges and opportunities also seen in other sectors, including the clean-tech application of 5G in water monitoring and waste-reuse - it's not just for making phone-calls!
Bernie is a former Chemist Lecturer and was the Chief Scientist for BP. As a "critical friend" to the UK Government, he championed a number of topics in his role within the Sustainable Development Commission with a specific focus on solar when he led the UK Office of Renewable Energy.
John Corr, MD of Smart Ledger, discusses the impending Zero Carbon Economy including Energy Prosumers, Blockchain, EVs, VCs, and everything inbetween
John Corr founded Smart Ledger in April 2016, since then it has gone on to become one of the global Top 40 Blockchain businesses.
In this #GameChangers conversation we discuss the rapid rise in electric vehicle (EV) use, with the potential that in 10 years 95% of all journeys will be electric. We also explore how ordinary citizens are set to go from being just energy users to also being energy producers (AKA prosumers), storers and traders on the wider market, driven by blockchain technology.
Lastly we discuss how the very nature of venture capital (VC) is changing to drive forward these innovations.
In addition to helping clients communicate, connect and change, I love highlighting stories from the front line of inspiring sustainability.
