ONS Energy Talks – Podcasts with Ramez Naam and Silvija Seres

Ramez Naam is impatient with what’s happening in the world of energy. In this podcast he debates how we can maintain the uplift of people’s lives by providing them with energy in a clean way. Naam also points to some of the factors that will disrupt the current energy markets.

Hear from keynote speaker at the ONS 2018 Conference Opening Ceremony and Co-Chair for Energy and Environment at Singularity University.

Ramez Naam is a computer scientist, investor, and award-winning author of five books. Ramez is the Co-Chair for Energy and Environment at Singularity University at NASA Ames.

He speaks around the world on innovation, exponential technology, and disruptive energy technologies. Ramez’s seminal 2011 Scientific American article, “Smaller, Cheaper, Faster” observed that the price of solar power was dropping exponentially and would eventually be lower than that of any other energy source. He’s since detailed the exponential trends in wind power, energy storage, and electric vehicles. His observations have been quoted by Nobel laureate Paul Krugman, by Ray Kurzweil and Peter Diamandis, and by energy and financial analysts around the world. In addition to his energy analysis, Ramez is an angel investor in numerous energy startups, a board member of E8 Angels, and the founder and leader of the first AngelList syndicate devoted to clean technology.

His work has appeared in or been quoted in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, The Atlantic, Slate, Business Week, Discover, Wired, and Scientific American. He’s appeared on MSNBC, on Yahoo Finance, and has spoken to corporate CEOs and boards on six continents, from Istanbul to Shanghai; from Buenos Aires to Washington DC.
