  27. 27. Challenges • The communication crisis • Funding the transition • Power shift
  28. 28. Where should the money be spent? $6 trillion over 10 years is ear-marked to extract assumed, albeit diminishing fossil fuel reserves In 2012, the global fossil fuel industry received over $580 billion in government subsidies There should be no shortage of capital that could redirected to: • Clean energy • Energy efficiency • Education and awareness
  29. 29. Where should the money be spent? “You can not believe two things simultaneosly... You can NOT believe that we can hold +2degs, even a 50:50 chance AND that hydrocarbon companies are any where near valued at the right price. You just can’t believe those two things simultaneously.” Prof. Lord Stern, Chair of the Grantham Inst. On Climate Change & The Environment “Up to 80% of stated reserves are likely to be un-burnable, or non-monetisable.” Paul Spedding, Oil & Gas Analyst (HSBC) “These reserves are not assets, they are liabilities that have yet to be priced in to fund valuations. We have adjusted our investment strategy accordingly.” Howard Pearce, Head of Pension Fund Management, Environment Agency “The Bank of England are responsible for regulating stability in the capital markets, right now they are allowing the carbon bubble to keep on inflating. That has got to change.” Dr Jeremy Leggett, Chair Carbon Tracker, founder and Chair Solarcentury & Solar Aid
  30. 30. Challenges
  31. 31. Comments Northern Ireland can not drive the mega-trend, we MUST develop our own strategic plan in order to ride the slip-stream: • Co-ordinated mobilisation through stable market enablement • Honest and transparent communications strategy • Robust UK, EU & US supply chain & experience partnering • Community-level engagement, reconstruction and future-proofing • Aim for leadership status • Do NOT under-estimate the challenge • ...or the scale and scope of the prize
