Trailblazer 11 | Elisabeth Brinton | Energy Visionary & Change Agent

This week our trailblazer is the Executive Vice President of Renewables and Energy Solutions at Shell, Elisabeth Brinton.

A self professed tree-hugger, provocateur and change agent, our conversation connects an incredible array of dots across capital, storage, technology, policy, innovation and partnerships. And the thing I love most about Elisabeth is that she always anchors to the end solution: a just energy transition.

Elisabeth passionately encourages us all to use this moment in time to bring everyone along on the journey. We’re here to fuel a new energy conversation and it starts with you.
