"The world is at a point where it is critically important to make the right tradeoffs between different sources of energy. Shimon Awerbuchâs unique contribution was to show how to do so rationally, in the face of fluctuating costs and risks. It was groundbreaking work, and its impact will only grow over time." Michael Liebrich, CEO New Energy Finance "Dr. Awerbuchâs work helped the business and industry sectors to better understand the costs and risks of investing in renewable energy, an extremely important contribution." James Cameron, Vice-Chairman, Climate Change Capital "Shimon Awerbuch has made an invaluable contribution by bringing the perspectives of finance theory to bear on the practical problems of analysing risk in energy markets, showing that a risk efficient portfolio of technologies may look quite different from the least expected cost choice, and thus providing powerful arguments for diversity and the use of renewables."
