00:00:01
hello everyone it brings me great pleasure to be here in the job okay it's
00:00:05
a little bit of a shock for me because i was come in windsor
00:00:11
and if from far you can't see the thickness of the last year when you come here in august
00:00:18
it's a real shock and that's when you understand why
00:00:22
michael uh noises these it covers seminars and
00:00:25
on the necessity of recycling certain sports which might
00:00:31
try outs uh and and very near future
00:00:36
so i was what problems and pessimism
00:00:41
it's something that's always bothered me in clinton outcomes isn't
00:00:44
environment on energy on climate change all conference
00:00:48
all speakers talk about climate change it's a catastrophe because this this and this
00:00:55
it's about natural disasters tropical disease in
00:00:58
europe refugees climate refugees the the
00:01:03
rising water levels it's the same uh issues they talk about
00:01:09
after ten minutes the audience is the press the problems are too big we converse all the most the point
00:01:14
and everyone goes home and things are something else and avoids promised to myself that i would do things differently
00:01:22
and that's maybe a my mice the um i my psychiatric
00:01:27
my my use psychologist side i i think about
00:01:30
not the problems but the solutions we need to put in place or wrote autumn the
00:01:34
aim of soul impulse was exactly this my n. without something about climate change
00:01:40
uh and to think that maybe if we all find so top lines we could resolve the problem
00:01:46
and then think about all the problems that this would involves a does not what i wanted to do we need to uh
00:01:52
for move on from this pessimism from this list of problems and forget
00:01:57
about the time is ordered to take i want to talk about
00:02:01
the solutions that exist purely and simply decisions exist decisions how are dispersed
00:02:07
in the brains of isolated individuals in the brains of people the setup starts out
00:02:14
in our environmental organisations and universities in large companies also are there
00:02:20
are lots of ideas in people's heads but they are not
00:02:25
uh circulated them not implemented all the only very locally
00:02:30
they help the company uh in this province the
00:02:34
company but it doesn't profit the world is at last because they're not aware of the solutions
00:02:41
so when we talk on the national so international scale about the
00:02:45
goal to attain a c. o. two emission reductions one
00:02:49
half degrees or two degree you rise in a global temperatures
00:02:54
these times i'll set it uh with respect switches because
00:02:59
we don't normally solutions exist we don't know about that they have set by politicians
00:03:04
uh by the after discussions between all the different political parties after discussions between the parties unresolved
00:03:11
sways quite minimalist was trying to do as little as possible and we agree about something that
00:03:16
more less everyone can agree to without this really changing anything
00:03:22
go to any real degree does not how we're going to move forward what we need to do now is for all these solutions to
00:03:30
come out of the woodwork and to grow up and should really
00:03:35
be exposed so again my aim is to talk about solar
00:03:41
uh impulse to meet its size its public size it and get new as
00:03:46
many people as possible i want to get people who have like
00:03:50
is products process is projects clean technologies
00:03:55
know how ways of working which can simultaneously protect the environment that
00:04:01
also creates jobs create profit and develop a our economies
00:04:08
because what we need to say today and this is something which is misunderstood
00:04:14
any it logical world if it's better to have a clean status quo
00:04:21
and uh
00:04:24
your idea today uh in you could if logical world is to say we should not
00:04:28
go for that and i think that's not sure which you have to go
00:04:32
because of the populations businesses politicians will not get on board
00:04:37
because no one's less known wants anything to contract everyone's
00:04:41
to do things better and they want more we should not talk about the negative growth and clean growth
00:04:49
is uh about replacing all technologies of clean technologies which are capable
00:04:56
if we look at the whole picture the whole makeshift technologies today
00:05:01
uh we need them to cut situations by half today when we can do this with the existing technologies we're not
00:05:08
in the future utopia we are talking about what can be
00:05:12
done today and this is a colossal market imagine
00:05:17
if you replace all come internal combustion engines at technology which is
00:05:21
a hundred fifty is alt f. i'm still uses technologies
00:05:25
replace the magic replacing combustion engines are but you're a most is uh
00:05:30
um because of the role i installation farms which got lighting we have our cake uh
00:05:36
it's a a light box um tradition labels all over a hundred years old he palm saucer
00:05:43
he palms of four times more fish and then a heating system over a rest area haiti element
00:05:51
small meet says allow us to
00:05:54
uh minimise the energy uh we use but also by distributing the and you use
00:06:00
a and spreading it's more fishing over the course of the day you
00:06:04
can reduce energy production consumer twenty percent using is a small distribution methods because
00:06:12
bob by having energy which isn't always used at the same time
00:06:16
so today we can do things that we have to replace the old with the new with the modern solar impulse
00:06:24
i was just an illustration of what can be done i did not use futuristic technologies and i remember when i
00:06:31
was crossing the atlantic it's only three days to go from new york to spain it's english three days
00:06:38
oh of uh well it was i was in a state of grace of uh well actually a a an
00:06:43
amazing uh three days it too much i could think
00:06:46
outlook it might fall a electric motors refuge
00:06:50
uh propellers which which revolvers logos no noise was no pollution
00:06:55
no fuel and i could fly it day and night
00:06:58
in a day that was enough sunshine to keep the uh proposed turning to church batteries
00:07:05
uh and keep them which would then uh run the engines overnight long enough to
00:07:12
to reach the morning with some come up again i i thought to myself
00:07:15
um in the future this is like a science fiction film but i was not in the future i
00:07:18
was in the present in the present that one technology enables and the rest of the world which
00:07:24
is in the past that's what i was thinking also money so impulsive not in the futures the rest
00:07:28
of the world which is in the past and when i learned that it was very depressing
00:07:32
because it was like some the arriving back in the past uh back into well that
00:07:37
pollute the wastes is primary resources from materials it wastes energy and a police
00:07:44
uh they have for its inhabitants and that's what we need to change and that sort of course foundation
00:07:51
uh now uh uh we have completed this roundabout trip how how does this
00:07:55
old impulse foundation where it needs to be very practical so we uh
00:08:02
once you've also every use but just late uh and many other advises a huge
00:08:08
advised us to change our name it was though too much uh focus something
00:08:13
uh that knowledge e. we talked now that's efficient solutions and we have foundation
00:08:18
which is a finance by partners any spawn is lost to of uh
00:08:23
all members of the foundation free of charge whether they be individuals or companies organisations of
00:08:28
startups allows them to do three things laws and allows us to offer them um
00:08:33
assessments of that's solutions in conjunction with the european commission
00:08:36
and the international energy agency so they're experts
00:08:40
that look at the solutions put forward to than the analysts the viability and credibility the solutions
00:08:47
because there are a lot of people who come see us and say uh
00:08:51
we can change well we've uh invented perpetual energy and special movements
00:08:56
that's not possible so we need to credible assertions put forth then we
00:09:00
have to put the startups in contact with finances and investment funds
00:09:05
and the world bank in particular i want to conference held by the world bank recently
00:09:11
and they said we have billions of dollars to invest and don't know where to put them we don't
00:09:15
know what to put this money we don't know what the uh uh whether promising projects are
00:09:21
we want people oh solutions of times six so i our aim is to bring
00:09:25
them solutions this had been assessed and vital lust ever uh and assesses viable
00:09:32
and also the the aim is to pull the sizes solutions and get them talked about in the
00:09:37
media and it's incredible to see what's i exist somewhat in which no one knows about
00:09:43
and we talked about the use games area if we use these technologies
00:09:48
we could held it into games for young people in twenty twenty
00:09:53
which according mutual which is exactly what price considering twenty twenty four houses
00:09:59
commits it's to holding cop unusual games in twenty twenty four
00:10:03
half through energy efficiency we have a budget with them to use the solutions anyone
00:10:09
can find if they look hard enough and also by uh reducing carbon emissions
00:10:14
i'll give you a quick example there was a company in france quicker takes on and it's something that i really uh
00:10:21
of uh uh thought was amazing is something i thought about it sorta or something no one
00:10:26
else thought about they accumulate heat and ceramic blocks and this the summer blossom eight from
00:10:32
waste recovered from industrial world so they're blocks of ceramics and i insulated container you can heat them up
00:10:38
to around a thousand reason keep the seat for several days which means that you can accumulate energy
00:10:45
uh overnight when energy's going to be wasted and then uses energy is hate it you hate
00:10:52
uh the homes and a combination of sports people we cannot use it
00:10:56
to create if she were heat exchanger creates steam to uh
00:11:00
that's run turbines michael said to me when uh he was a
00:11:03
sportsman past just headlines heated up uh after each before races
00:11:09
in this case we can use energy that's lost in the day to and and my time to
00:11:13
heat athletes and a combination routes somebody solutions of this type of and this includes um
00:11:22
things that saddam by major companies that i i don't know if you know but the ability to put grains of grass
00:11:28
in the tires of cars which is called silica and scholars agree
00:11:32
with these types of ties consumes six percent less she'll
00:11:40
and try manufactures how they are using already wanted to manufacture use an as of
00:11:46
german company was developed a system to manufacture chlorine with thirty percent less energy
00:11:54
and for me ah chlorine i didn't know this but this one the most
00:11:58
commonly manufactured products and also hygiene cleaning chemistry except sure it's one
00:12:02
of the most commonly product produced products over thirty percent energy savings in
00:12:07
clover inflection adds up to a colossal not an only country
00:12:11
that has surgeons uses process is china you know in europe or in this not mark
00:12:17
was interested in this in in the states there is a washing powder which allows
00:12:22
close to be cleans cold in cold water that would
00:12:28
reduce energy consumption in america by a fairly
00:12:31
significant percentage so there are citizens that exist but comes need to be aware of what exists
00:12:39
any to base their environmental and economic objectives on this these really solutions
00:12:47
and overall is try to act as catalysts to bring these technologies to the for
00:12:52
our aim is to bring thousands solutions to cop twenty four in poland
00:13:01
and this is a is a new possibility to talk about
00:13:04
talk to comments which are totally dependent on carpenter to orange it's what's come
00:13:09
to the minister of energy few months ago in krakow i i asked him what
00:13:13
the main problem of poland is he said we have too much call
00:13:18
and it's interesting also to say what i think about how you can stem from
00:13:23
problems on ahead for example if you have a car which turns um
00:13:29
das a petrol in a internal combustion engine you pretty twice as much c.
00:13:33
o. two is if you have a call a modern powered a cool
00:13:38
generation coal power
00:13:42
it would be twice a it 'cause you twice as much energy is if you'd call pouch they a power station to power your cost
00:13:50
and fish and uh a little uh electrical most radical is ninety some percent efficient
00:13:57
and a whole power stations twice efficient as an internal combustion engine yes call power is
00:14:04
i'm more efficient than like an engine even so she power logical using
00:14:10
this call is still twice as efficient than the internal combustion engine
00:14:14
even using call power so i i think you're expecting me to talk about lovely uh uh landscapes
00:14:21
uh the i saw the sunrise and sunset site witnessed on solar
00:14:25
impulse you can see that's on a video called objectives
00:14:27
away but instead of not this past which is my past in its aircraft i'm going to the lot of future
00:14:34
and about what we can do with the opportunities we have um with the different solutions that exist and this if
00:14:41
a project allowed new door to be opened and it's true that any european commission
00:14:46
uh the u. doors have been opened now they'd asking us to give them a
00:14:50
little bit folk the european commission after breaks it wanted us to come
00:14:55
and show them that in your there's a real will to unite countries around
00:14:59
energy projects and un asked me the same thing after chum selection
00:15:04
uh when they said he's going to cut our budget please give us some new
00:15:08
hope allows to dream again last to be optimistic again so at this level
00:15:14
uh solar impulse is still a a flying and
00:15:18
uh and the aims to develop further while
00:15:22
i was talking about from the start my outline is the director of the world alliance
00:15:28
uh she came with me here today because there are several uh people have solutions say today i went to
00:15:35
detonate and michael to he has had a cray which
00:15:38
i've found extraordinary with his bloomberg energy finance
00:15:46
and in the tops fee is um of the u. n. i. meets michael and i see him it's un
00:15:53
commences and it inlay job of a is the practical side of what you want to develop for this
00:15:58
uh for this village and these are the two aspects you need to go to combine the top level and that
00:16:04
and the bottom levels all star and we have to be extremely ambitious in
00:16:08
order to succeed and extremely ambitious means
00:16:10
not following regulations prospectuses except for
00:16:17
if you have a new project whether it be a youth into games whether it be summer
00:16:22
games whether deconstruction a building a cable car a
00:16:27
candle or whatever it is be ambitious
00:16:31
they had to do things differently to do things much better than what's
00:16:34
you are obliged to do because standards today are extremely minimalist
00:16:40
and extremely an ambitious so be ambitious if imagine being
00:16:45
big things we've uh i uh ambitious targets of
00:16:52
and downs confines of the small problems in your local area thing about the big problems to like continue
00:16:58
i will continue to say i we said is you cannot stop the developments of a village
00:17:03
you can't develop revolution developing a ski resorts and ski lifts
00:17:07
in the region which is totally tend towards winter sports
00:17:11
uh as you can't do it simply to for local if
00:17:15
logical regions uh reasons uh with political resistance the
00:17:20
block process is except or they're all operations in the jabber away it's yeah really village where you have
00:17:26
a flat a chair left it doesn't take you a higher than what you started
00:17:33
oh yeah and it's this is why i'm this is because ecologists i didn't want
00:17:40
to go open and down over mountain which would've created to a new piece
00:17:46
and uh and that's why we just have a flat uh a chair left for another thing that's what colours should be focusing on
00:17:55
you're none of your damn looking good and pure pants you can
00:17:59
see q. all the the passage on the data show more
00:18:02
to create the most most free white a ski area in switzerland
00:18:07
and this is something that is blocked by each tool ecological
00:18:11
um how is so let's ask ecologist to do their real job to fight against big problems
00:18:19
a climate change
00:18:21
water quality equality
00:18:25
but while also enabling economic development because otherwise we
00:18:30
can't hijack we're going to get a low
00:18:35
because the entire populations to be against uh developments i may get to throw
00:18:39
the baby out with the bathwater we need to look at big problems
00:18:43
and for let's find the best solutions to succeed in overcoming this problem so
00:18:47
the political side is very important legal frameworks must also be ambitious
00:18:53
not just us from the lounge project also the legal frameworks must force everyone to use
00:19:00
new solutions otherwise we will never use them the minister of energy in sweden
00:19:06
told us that in sweden they have a very high comment facts on than sixty five
00:19:10
years but sound of cotton or an uh in switzerland the taxes eight to ten
00:19:17
yeah and that's only on fish on a fuels
00:19:22
and this comments x. is totally supported by swedish underage industry because it will
00:19:26
force them to become much more efficient and therefore much more profitable
00:19:32
and that's also very interesting c. o. two is not just a pollution market it's become that
00:19:37
mark of inefficiency uh a market of energy loss of inefficiency and the loss of profit
00:19:49
so you have to reconcile environmental side and the financial side to make things before that i think that's how how
00:19:55
and if solutions are not profitable we will succeed we can't ask people sacrifice
00:20:00
because otherwise they will not do so so let's use technological solutions
00:20:06
um it's not the most uh exciting thing that is most efficient thing i've noticed about the beauty of nature
00:20:13
we need to find out about the quality of the technology we need to to mark thank you
