At SoftPath Innovations, we believe that our global future depends on our approach to the production and consumption of energy. We know that technology and innovation will play a critical role in enabling the balance of supply and demand and that the successful application of technology must focus on both:

  1. BulletIncreasing the energy efficiency of our current infrastructure and products (more for less)

  2. BulletThe development of a diverse range of energy production methods with an emphasis on renewable technologies (move towards sustainability and diversity)

We are committed to applying our expertise to help companies become successful in these areas.

the soft energy path

“...combines a prompt and serious commitment to efficient use of energy, rapid development of renewable energy sources…and special transitional fossil-fuel technologies. This path, a whole greater than the sum of its parts, diverges radically from incremental past practices to pursue long-term goals.”
