Emerging Energy Solutions Must Compete on Price

Vinod Khosla, Khosla Ventures

Forget every argument and industry lobby previously put forward regarding the evolution of green energy alternatives. For Vinod Khosla, founder of Khosla Ventures, if a technology doesn’t meet the “Chindia test” – meaning that it is cheaper than the current status quo in China and India – then it is not a viable, scalable, and cost-effective long-term alternative. Anything that will uproot the global reliance on oil or coal must be less expensive, else it will never gain traction in the global marketplace.
