Olivia Breese at TED’s Countdown Summit 2023

How can a molecular love story reimagine the world's energy landscape?

Ørsted’s Olivia Breese, Power-to-X CEO, chronicles how the marriage between a green electron and a water molecule created the green molecule – a transformative source of carbon-free, renewable energy. This mighty green molecule is the foundation of e-fuels and green hydrogen used to power emission-free shipping, aviation, material production, and much more.

But for this love story to have a happy ending, Olivia warns, we need universal investment. She calls upon climate leaders in government, industry, and society, as well as voters and consumers, to support the scale up of this powerful energy source. "A world which runs entirely on green energy, it's not a luxury. It's a necessity," she says.
