Key Findings from the Interview

  1. What does sustainability mean to you?

Sustainability is attempting to create methods that rely on themselves.

  1. How is energy misused or inefficiently used in your home country/state?

Natural disasters may affect the efficiency of current systems, but there is an over-reliance on coal and carbon emission products.

  1. If a system that uses energy more efficiently/effectively was introduced to your daily life with a ramification of price increase (say, 10-30%) would you embrace it or reject it?

I would reject it. I need the best product, the most effective. If it so happens to be eco-friendly, that’s great.

  1. Do you have any ideas or opinions on how to improve energy usage in your country/state or as a whole?

We could develop systems that combine existing systems, or hybrid systems like both electric and diesel cars, that allow the industry to transition slowly as the technology develops.
