energy trailblazers

Fueling a new energy conversation with our audiovisual Energy Trailblazers series

We are acutely aware the actions we take today will determine our futures and the futures of our children. This is why the Energy Disruptors founding team has collaborated with EY to ignite change now.  Together we are launching an unapologetically honest podcast and video interview series featuring the bravest energy explorers of our time.

We invite you to meet 12 global trailblazers, each with the bold vision and unstoppable courage to ensure we evolve fast enough to outpace our greatest energy and climate challenges.   These authentic and intimate conversations will be hosted by the globally recognized tour-de-force, Holly Ransom.

The world needs audacious creativity and unprecedented collaboration between diverse groups more than ever.  Our commitment is to translate the human element behind the technical momentum of our clean energy future because these are the conversations we all need to be having. Not just at boardroom tables or within the upper echelons of government, but around kitchen tables, in classrooms, and over the backyard fence. Only when we can all take part in the conversation will we accelerate a global transition to cleaner energy and mobility.   

The energy for change is in all of us.   Do you have the audacity to take the path of most resistance?
