Energy transition: conclusions from 6-months on the road?

The video below contains my top five conclusions on the energy transition, from some eye-opening real world experiences. Specifically, for the better part of the past six months, my wife and I have been working ‘nomadically’, moving to a new location week-after-week.

Below is some actual footage of the trip, illustrating some of those surprisingly tree-filled landscapes in the middle of the country…

Finally, in case your curiosity has been piqued, here is my wife’s take on our US adventures, and our permanent re-location to Estonia, the ‘most digital country in the world’… link here.
