Bill Gates joined Energy Secretary Steven Chu last week to discuss how America can meet and prosper from 21st century global energy challenges. It was moderated by John Podesta and recorded at the ARPA-E 2012 summit.
ARPA-E’s mission is to develop continued innovation in energy. Doubling the efficiency of solar and the capacity of energy storage may enable the technology to go viral – much like cell phones, said the Secretary. It was a great conversation that’s worth a listen.
