Quotes

...As Amory Lovins is quoted, "governments can steer, but not row" (p. 20). Evidence of this public-private cooperation is the Global Insurance Industry Statement , November 2013
"A breakthrough in cheap bulk storage of electricity would be helpful, but not vital," says Lovins. "we needn't wait for it, and the market isn't waiting."
"It is exciting to see the Empire State Building example being replicated," said RMI Co-founder and Chief Scientist Amory Lovins. "with the country’s 120 million buildings consuming 42 percent of our nation’s total energy and 72 percent of our electricity we must accelerate the adoption of deep energy saving retrofits—even at the pace of hundreds of buildings at a clip across entire portfolios."
