Working on the energy problem is really about legacy. Energy, its availability and its reliability are what allowed us to attain the quality of life we can be grateful for today.

Robust energy systems should be like the internet. They need to be hybrids of everything, massively interconnected and networked in a way that they’re extremely resilient. I don’t see any one technology dominating the future energy system.
