    News & Insights From Broadscale Group December 2014   

The year is closing with dramatic developments in the energy industry – not only plunging oil prices, but signs of major change in the power sector. E.ON, one of Europe’s largest utilities, is splitting into two companies to focus on cleaner, distributed energy instead of centralized fossil fuels. And Hawaii’s main utility agreed to be purchased by NextEra, a clean energy leader whose CEO called the deal a “postcard from the future” – as a mix of increasingly cost-competitive renewables, energy storage, software, and other new technologies challenge the traditional utility model.

From Climate Progress to Obvious Ventures
 
Andrew Shapiro spoke about energy innovation at Climate Week’s opening session in September, which featured leaders ranging from Ban Ki-moon of the UN to Tim Cook of Apple, and we were pleased to see subsequent progress in the US-China climate agreement and at the Lima summit. Andrew also has become an advisor to Obvious Ventures, a new fund started by Twitter co-founder Evan Williams and partners James Joaquin and Vishal Vasishth to invest in what it calls #worldpositive companies.
