Our first C-Change Conversations speaker was Jigar Shah, author of Creating Climate Wealth: Unlocking the Impact Economy. Shah unlocked the multi-billion dollar worldwide solar industry with a business model innovation, the Power Purchase Agreement. This model created SunEdison, the largest solar services company worldwide. Jigar Shah has shown that business model innovation applied to the biggest challenge of our lifetime – climate change – will unlock a $10 trillion dollar new economy. After a successful exit at SunEdison, Jigar served as the first CEO of the Carbon War Room — a global non-profit founded by Sir Richard Branson and Virgin Unite to help entrepreneurs address climate change. Today, as CEO of Jigar Shah Consulting, he works to invest and consult into business model and financial innovation from his offices in NYC. Shah spoke to our group about new developments and opportunities in the energy sector.
