TEDxWWF - Justin Hall-Tipping: The Power of the Simple Electron

Justin Hall-Tipping works on nano-energy startups - mastering the electron to create power.Some of our most serious planetary worries revolve around energy and power - controlling it, paying for it, and the consequences of burning it. Justin Hall-Tipping had an epiphany about the need for finding and harnessing new forms of energy after seeing footage of a chunk of ice the size of his home state (Connecticut) falling off Antarctica into the ocean. A longtime investor, he formed Nanoholdings to work closely with universities and labs who are studying new forms of nano-scale energy in the four sectors of the energy economy: generation, transmission, storage and conservation.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)http://www.tedxwwf.com
