Today we will view a video on the subject of Global Grids followed by Alex Mednick's review of the TiE Smart City Initiative.

damien ernst pic 2The video was recorded at a TEDX event. The speaker is Damien Ernst. The title of his presentation is "The Global Grid for Empowering Renewable Energy". Damien presents an interesting twist on the problems associated with moving to renewable energy and some common economic obstacles which need to be looked at. It was well received by viewers and should provide some thought provoking insite.
