The Problem: transform from fossil to renewable in less than 20 years
To maintain a habitable planet and a stable human civilization, science tells us that by 2040 all fossil energies must be replaced by renewables.
The transformation from fossil to renewable rests on four pillars:
Bad: today only 1% of primary energies have been replaced by solar and wind. We have hence a long way to go and little time.
Good: Today, renewable electricity is cheaper than fossil electricity. Hence, the transformation is in principle possible.
kiwi supports the transformation as follows:
We analyze value chains from start to finish, e.g. for transport: from the oil well to your home delivery. What is the total CO2 footprint on your home-delivered T-shirt?
We develop and operate - together with partners - alternative renewable value chains that have a significantly lower footprint.
Example for Germany:
This creates a market for that renewable value chain.
This creates a market for technologies that are needed in the value chain.
We look at all technologies available and select the ones that enable us to build that value chain today.
