Bill Gates gives his opinion on the energy crisis that shocks the world

American tycoon Bill Gates, one of the most respected people in the world, is in the habit of making predictions about the future of technology and global society.

The future of cell phones, telecommuting and the future of work are just some of them. However, this week in a chat with CNBC, Gates dared to make some predictions about the energy crisis.

For the Microsoft co-founder, the crisis that Europe is suffering due to the energy shortage “is good in the long term”, because “people will not want to depend on Russian gas”.

However, he himself acknowledged that he was wrong to believe that this transition would be quicker.

Instead, Bill Gates said that in his opinion this will take at least three decades. In his comments, Gates pointed out that many people are dependent on what we consume and our world revolves around it, so the change will not happen “radically”. Therefore, “a plan to accelerate the process” is needed.

Bill Gates’ key: Do not marginalize developing countries.

But what would this plan consist of? For Bill Gates, it is important that new technologies create “clean energy” should do so without marginalizing developing countries.

“Help people adapt to new circumstances by funding industry,” he added.

Gates made an appearance at the Energy Summit held in his hometown of Seattle and organized by his venture fund Breakthrough Energy.

At the summit, Gates said that he and many investors did not find companies to invest in back in 2015.

However, their concern went away because they now work with more than 100 companies focused on meat alternatives, energy conservation or energy-efficient buildings, among other initiatives.
