How can we shift from fossil fuels to 100% clean energy? How can we do it in a way that makes all of us richer, healthier and happier?
In this keynote, Billy Parish puts the power in our hands, arguing that people must participate in their own energy projects. This young leading change-maker turned social entrepreneur shows how our generation can shift to 100% renewable energy by employing the avant-garde crowdfunding techniques to democratize invest opportunities and spread distributed energy.
