Dear Blue Blue,

Looking through this week`s stories, it struck me that there are are three driving forces that while not officially linked are having the combined effect of making the transition to a sustainable future almost it now seems inevitable. The first is China. The news this week that all of the country’s new power demand was met by wind and solar last year. Taken together with the scale of some of the hybrid plants being constructed, China is demonstrating that renewables can be scaled up in a way that few thought possible even a few years ago. Secondly, Elon Musk continues to raise the stakes and levels of ambition with his new intent to put a storage system in every house. Thirdly, just look at the wonderful collection of local inventions in the Science & Technology section from solar powered tuk-tuks and backpacks to AC/DC Hybrid Nanogrids and fish waste as biomass. Truly exciting times indeed.
