As I write I'm packing my bags for Austin, TX. I'll be speaking at and attending an emobility event there. At Hyperion we are expanding our presence and capacity in the US. We see so much dynamism and cleantech activity, despite Trump and his fossil fuel friends. But this isn't the first article to point to Asia as the next global powerhouse, and it won't be the last. As the US rejects Green New Deal policies, is it shooting itself in the foot economically and in its global political leadership? It is certainly a smart play by Europe. And who's idea was Brexit!!!! One thing for sure, the Hyperion teams will continue to find elite talent and build awesome green companies around the world.
Since the close of World War II, the United States has overseen an expanding global order built on fossil fuels. That era has come to an end. Where coal powered the British Empire, and oil powered the American Century, renewable energy technologies are now set to drive the post-American world. Europe’s “Green Deal” represents the beginning of this new era.
