Mark Kenber, CEO of The Climate Group, said: Tulsi Tanti is a true pioneer of The Clean
Revolution, showing how confronting the global climate challenge goes hand-in-hand with business
success and creating lasting prosperity. In Lets Save the Planet, he lays out a set of small but
significant steps to take clean technologies to scale and avoid severe environmental damage to the
worlds economy. I commend it to all those attending this years World Economic Forum in Davos.
Determining the true cost of energy, and forming alliances between governments, private sector
and civil society are essential for securing sustainable future energy needs. The solution outlined in
the document requires commitment to legally binding emissions caps, as well as private sector
initiatives for sustainable and profitable business models.
The astonishingly high potential of modern day renewable energy is highlighted: while oil and
conventional gas may peak between 150-160 years, wind and solar alone has over one million GW
of estimated potential power capacity, which can fulfill electricity needs for many centuries.
