Goals, progress made and learnings. Plus what next for 2023.
Happy New Year and well done for 2022! I was really inspired by your long read articles and will build on that thinking for 2023. The intersection of Materials revolution and a real Energy transition is a key area to look at. While I focus much further back in the supply chain ---primary product production and distribution, a transition away from incumbent energy sources will accelerate only when consumers have an equivalent choice (convenience + cost) for the end product. The conventional energy sector is so far removed from the Customer; operating primarily B2B, it is difficult to envision a radically shift in the business model. The main exception is your friendly utility which is very focus on the retail customer and their preferences.
On the COVID front---please take special care. My husband got severe covid in early 2021--pre-vaccine and it was very touch and go even with the high flow O2 treatment for 8 days in ICU. His rehab was 6 months and his immune system was really compromised. He got COVID again in August and it created even more complications despite taking Paxalovid. COVID is a novel virus and all its effects are unpredictable on all systems even with the vaccine and boosters. Rest, eat healthy, exercise and if worried- stay home and mask up. Good luck. Look forward to seeing your work in 2023.
Happy new year! Wishing you a full recovery soon, and may 2023 be the best year yet! 💚 🥃
