According to Green Peace, the world can rely on renewable energy for 100% of energy needs by 2050. But, what would the costs be? And what would be the impact on geopolitics? Jochen shares his views in this interview he had on Al Jazeera's "Inside Story".
Jochen Wermuth is Founding Partner of Wermuth Asset Management GmbH, a 100% impact family office, and of the Green Gateway Fund, supporting EU resource efficient growth companies. He headed the EU and World Bank financed Economic Expert Group under the Russian Ministry of Finance, was a founding management committee member of OOO Deutsche Bank, started supporting Greenpeace and set up his own firm in the 1990s.
The Green Gateway Fund invests €5 to 30m of equity into growth-stage resource efficient companies, mainly in western Europe, and helps them to access East European markets via the gateway of Kazan.
Needles to say, we're very proud to have him as our Opening Keynote at our upcoming TBLI CONFERENCE EUROPE 2015 in Zürich, this November.
