Ghana’s Growing Need for Reliable Energy

The Ghanaian government has made significant efforts to improve its electrical infrastructure, yet access to reliable energy remains an impediment to economic development. Unplanned power outages continue to be a problem for the growing country due to growing supply & demand constraints.

Bill Gates – How To Avoid A Climate Disaster

I launched Impact Capital Partners because I obviously agree with Bill Gates that it is important to address the world’s most difficult issues. The essence of How To Avoid A Climate Disaster is that we are putting 51 billion tons of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere every year, and to avoid a climate disaster, we need to get the net number to ZERO within 30 years. Importantly, Bill is optimistic that we can solve these problems because of his belief in innovation, but we need breakthroughs to get there.

I highly recommend this book and I’m even placing it on my MUST READ LIST!
