Small Business and Energy

Yesterday I wrote a post commenting on news from the IEA that it will take $45 trillion dollars and 40 plus years to get to an energy solution that is desirable. Here is an excerpt of my post:

What the IEA is mostly talking about from an expense perspective is the
build out of the infrastructure to begin with. But much of it is built
or is unneeded entirely. There isn’t a silver bullet in the energy
revolution. It is an assortment of smaller technologies and habit
changes.

My prediction is that a few changes that seem
irrelevant to the scale of the problem will be catalysts to another
level of energy utilization. I think it will happen within 10 years and
then take another 10 years for the realization of it to peak.

Well, just reading the NY Times today provided further optimism for this stance. The piece is called Nature Gave Him a Blueprint, but Not Overnight Success and it is about a company called Pax Scientific. The company has efficiency solutions that it engineered from understanding how liquid and gas moves (non linear). This company was not growing at the rate it expected, but once its customer’s understood the implications the sales have seen a dramatic uptick.

I feel there are at least several small companies like this that are ready to see their potential realized.

My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
