Today’s enlightening Conversations on Climate podcast episode delves into the transformative world of energy transition and corporate-led renewable energy procurement.

This episode is presented in collaboration with the Yale School of Business and the Environment, In this special recording from Yale’s inspiring campus, we engage with Ricky Buch, the visionary co-founder and CTO of Power Trust, whose innovative platform is reshaping how global giants like Netflix and Salesforce approach energy procurement, fostering sustainable micro-projects in developing countries.

Discover the compelling story of climate action across different regions, as we explore the significant impact of voluntary renewable energy procurement on global decarbonisation efforts.

During this conversation, Ricky shares insightful perspectives on the challenges and opportunities in accelerating the energy transition in emerging markets, emphasising the crucial role of corporate commitment and the innovative financial models that are making a tangible difference in underserved communities.

“…I would say it’s that corporate led, voluntary renewable procurement remains a significant driver for grid decarbonisation globally…”

“…bring people together because we all have that common mission…
And I think that’s that’s a powerful driving force.”
