Think about the last time you switched on a light, charged your phone or cooked. Where did that electricity come from? More and more, that power is coming from renewable sources, such as wind and solar, instead of fossil fuels. And as we focus more on society’s impact on the environment and our climate, renewable energy is becoming harder to ignore.

On this episode of The Bid, David Giordano, Global Head of Renewable Power, discusses why renewable power is at a tipping point and why the industry is ripe for disruption.
