It’s one of the most amazing things to consider, yet we often gloss over it: Countless years ago, humans learned how to make fire. Ever since then, we’ve been burning stuff for energy (for heat initially, and more recently for electricity and to propel vehicles forward). At long last, we are in an era where we can stop burning stuff. We can now create electricity by capturing sunlight and wind, and we can power our cars and trucks with that same electricity. I believe it was Desmond Wheatley — founder, president, and CEO of Beam Global (formerly Envision Solar) — who first tipped me off to looking at this tremendous, unprecedented transition in this way. Beam Global produces various types of solar-powered EV charging stations. What’s all of this got to do with France, and France’s new climate law in particular? Well, France has just announced in this climate bill that 30% of the surface of new commercial and industrial buildings will have to be solarized starting on January 1, 2023 — a year and a half from now.
