Dear Blue Blue,

In yet another week dominated by President-elect Trump’s decisions on key political appointments that could affect U.S. and world energy policy, we’ve tried to look deeper for positive stories around the globe. Fortunately there are still many, interestingly often from people who might just also have Trump’s ear. We have Masayoshi Son of Japan’s SoftBank proposing an Asian super grid fuelled by renewables, the U.S. military continuing to invest in solar and renewable for its giant infrastructure base, and Bill Gates launching a US$ 1 billion clean energy fund. Another clear theme is African innovation with stories on PAYG solar moving to include satellite TVs and smart dorpies in South Africa. All in all, there are reasons to remain hopeful that momentum can be maintained.
