Ben Jeffreys, the CEO of ATEC comes on the show to discuss carbon credits and how this concept contributes to the renewable energy transition.

-What do we think of digitization and carbon markets?
-Carbon credits underscores a lot of what we don’t actually know about carbon emissions and digitization
-Carbon credit is essentially the ability of offset your emissions and pay for that privilege
-We’re trying to transition our entire energy structure, which is no small feat
-Most energy transitions, historically, have been taken care of by the market
-Is it worth bankrupting the world to go about this transition, or do we let the market take care of it?
-If you look at what is happening now, the market is already taking care of this transition
-How do you make money off of this? Many companies have committed to the energy transition to renewable resources
-What does a carbon credit go for? It fluctuates, but it’s sitting around $9-$10 per ton
-2040 is probably a realistic goal for when this transition will come to fruition
-Globally, we are trying to bring universal access to energy
-The transition is not coming because of government policies, but in spite of government policies
