The Energy to Change: A Sustainable World

How do we power a sustainable world? Bloomberg experts featured in part 1 include Seb Henbest and Jenny Chase of Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Part 2 features academic Tony Seba, author of "Clean Disruption of Energy and Transportation". Part 3 features the world's largest solar plant in Morocco, which will supply energy for millions and shows how technology is harnessing the sun's energy 24/7. It also features a start up in South Africa that is using recycled plastic bags to create solar backpacks for schoolchildren.
