Recharge4040 hails energy pioneers

Recharge has released a unique new list celebrating some of the world’s brightest young pioneers of new energy – the Recharge4040.

The Recharge4040 list – compiled from a long-list made up of nominations submitted over the last few months – includes representatives from organisations in areas as diverse as renewables technology, development, finance, government and advocacy.

The group will form a powerful new network as the world grapples with the challenges of transitioning to a clean, sustainable energy model.

The work of the 40, all aged 40 or younger, will be highlighted over the coming months, in the build-up to a unique event in October.

Recharge editor-in-chief Ben Backwell said: “We were delighted to receive nominations from companies such as Google, Solar City, Vestas, Jinko, NRG Energy, DNV-GL and many others, and from everywhere from Brazil to South Africa to China.

“The really inspiring thing has been to see how many young people from a diverse range of backgrounds are in leadership positions in our sector."
