We often assume that because green energy costs more to produce, it’s less profitable for the seller in the long-run. Greg Kiessling, Board Chair of Canadians for Clean Prosperity & Inmotive Inc., believes we are just starting to see the real potential of cleantech, and that the possibilities will only increase as carbon prices adjust.
Greg Kiessling is founding chair of Canadians for Clean Prosperity, a not-for-profit advocating for carbon pricing. He is also an investor and board chair of Inmotive Inc., a Canadian start-up developing an innovative two-speed transmission for Electric Vehicles.
Greg was co-founder and board chair of Bullfrog Power from 2004 to 2018. Bullfrog Power is Canada’s leading green energy provider. He has also served in a variety of fundraising and board leadership roles for the ground-breaking Pathways to Education program.
Earlier in his career, Greg was co-founder, chairman and CEO of Sitraka, which was Canada’s largest self-financed software company when it was purchased in 2002.
Greg received his Bachelor of Mathematics at the University of Waterloo in 1984.
“Think about how you can be ahead of your competitors on reducing carbon – this will help the earth and you.”
In this week’s episode of the #StartupCanadaPodcast, sponsored by Mastercard, Greg discusses the current trends in the clean tech space, the importance of carbon reduction, and his career in the 90’s software scene.
