  1. 1. The following information may contain forward looking statements. Forward looking statements address future events and conditions and therefore involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those currently anticipated in such statements.
  2. 2. » Energy is the largest industry in world. » Demand for energy continues to increase. » A tipping point has been reached. » Transformation from carbon-based energy to renewable/sustainable energy. » Renewable energy is at the apex of this massive transformation.
