Berlin Green Investment Summit 2019: The videos

Berlin Green Investment Summit 2019: The videos

Value Investor Jeremy Grantham has named it as a “Race of our Lives“: Adapting to the challenges of the climate crisis, which must go hand in hand with a comprehensive decarbonization of all areas of life. Especially as a long-term investor it is important to have this topic on your screen, because with the right positioning you can do good and earn a lot of money.

In the German-speaking world, value investor Jochen Wermuth, whom we got to know in an extensive interview, has taken on the subject like no other. Jochen invited us to his conference “Berlin Green Investment Summit” at the beginning of June, where we were able to record many of the presentations on video and also published numerous interviews with guests.

Die Teilnehmer*innen des Berlin Green Investment Summit

What were our highlights of the conference?

  1. The “Climate Endowment” model wants to use the successful endowment model of Yale and Harvard, for example, to combine a long-term capital investment with CO² reduction. Behind this plan are prominent minds such as former Harvard Endowment CEO Stephen Blyth, former CEO of France’s largest pension fund Philippe Défossès and Mats Andersson, who has long managed a large Swedish pension fund.
  2. The presentation of NexWafe was a real hit for us. The Freiburg-based company seems to have managed to revolutionize solar wafer production. Their wafers should save 50% of CAPEX. In addition, the wafers should be more flexible and thinner, which could open up many new fields of application. If the company is successful as planned, we may have seen the new German world market leader in wafer production here.
  3. The presentations of XNRGI and Primekss also left their mark on us. XNRGI’s technology could be a Gamechanger for battery production. It offers the opportunity to use the infrastructure of the semiconductor production for the production of batteries and to save 95% of the CAPEX. Primekss has developed a concrete manufacturing process that can save CO² and costs.

Now to the videos:
