What’s it all about?
Keeping the increase in global temperatures to below the 1.5 degrees agreed at the Paris climate change summit. My guest today, Philipp Schroeder has been instrumental in the growth of Tesla in Europe, the growth of Sonnen globally, and now throws his talent, connections and money into changing the landscape of last mile delivery of residential and small commercial solar, heat pumps, EV Charging infrastructure and energy supply. A big task, but already with much traction, and some big investment. I hope you enjoy the episode.
