What’s it all about?
Solving some of our biggest issues in the C&I (Commercial and Industrial) sectors. Buildings use SO much energy, electricity, heat and of course cooling. As climate change increases tempretures, more cooling is needed, creating a negative feedback loop. My guest today addresses this and many other energy and emissions problems, using……Water. And a great lesson, sometimes we all need a direct and maybe not so friendly piece of advice to put us back on track. A great entrepreneur and technology story. I hope you enjoy the episode.
