The sustainable "smart everything world" is at the intersection of the two the biggest secular trends in the world. First, we are seeing technology continue to emerge in its own right, but also within every other industry. The winners in real estate, finance, heavy industry, and every other industry are now being determined largely by the smart application of technology. Second, the move towards a low-carbon energy system is happening at a faster pace than most expected a decade ago. Technology is at the forefront of this massive energy transition. The emerging sustainable energy system encompasses things from solar, wind, batteries, and EVs to carbon capture, renewable natural gas, low carbon fuels, and hydrogen. This presentation will cover trends in the sustainable "smart everything world," as well as offer several stocks likely to be big winners in the next few years.
