Amory Lovins’ TED-talks on Reinventing Fire and Winning the Oil-End Game have collectively had more than one million views. To celebrate, TED invited Amory to its 2014 TED Global conference in Vancouver, Canada, to give an update on the energy transition. In this re-recording by RMI, Amory shares how solar power worldwide is now growing faster than cellphones, and debunks the myth that a reliable electricity supply from mostly or wholly renewable resources will need giant “baseload” power stations or a breakthrough in cheap electrical storage.
