Electricity and electrification is the efficiency we’ve been looking for. Inventor, author and founder of Rewiring Australia Dr Saul Griffith shares his vision to Electrify everything with The Big Switch. Saul talks through the 101 million machines within Australian homes and businesses that need to be electrified in the next 20 years that will lead us into a clean energy future.
Saul’s mission is to get clean electrification, eliminate all emissions, reduce cost of living and improve the health of all Australians. Saul is an inventor, author, and successful entrepreneur. He has led dozens of research projects in energy, robotics, and manufacturing and founded and co-founded multiple successful companies. In 2007 he was awarded a Macarthur Fellowship, the so-called ‘Genius Grant’, for inventions in the service of humanity. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
