"The need to shift to green has never been more evident than it is today. In fact, there is a strong argument to be made for a green recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The global pandemic has provided overwhelming evidence in showcasing the impact mankind has had on the planet. As a result of the worldwide shutdowns in Venice, Italy, the water in the canals were almost crystal clear, and in Krakow, Poland, people enjoyed the amazing view of the Trata mountains, which were no longer been obscured by smog," said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Turbine.
"This movement to lower emissions and promote higher efficiency energy solutions should not be a political issue that divides us, but a social issue that unites us all to improve the environment while simultaneously saving money and creating more green jobs. The most valuable lesson this pandemic has given, is just how powerful we can be if we can all work together to find practical, cost-effective, and realistic ways to reduce our environmental impact on the world," added Mr. Jamison.
Today the younger generation, like Colton Herta, make up over 30% of the world's population and are arguably the most concerned when it comes to environmental sustainability as the first generation to have grown up with climate change as part of everyday life. The partnership with Capstone and Andretti Harding Steinbrenner Autosport allows us to reach a broader audience and educate the INDYCAR community about Capstone's high-efficiency, low-emission energy solutions.
"I'm proud to be a partner with Capstone Turbine, it's an incredible company, and the #ShiftToGreen initiative is a great way to raise awareness about important environmental issues," said Herta, Andretti Harding Steinbrenner driver.
Capstone is committed to improving the efficiencies of energy needs around the world with its clean-and-green energy solutions, while simultaneously reducing the global emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases. Capstone's systems help end-users improve their impact on the environment while still meeting power and reliability needs.
"We are very happy to offer a platform for Capstone to raise awareness of their #ShiftToGreen initiative," said Andretti Harding Steinbrenner team principal, Michael Andretti. "Capstone's microturbine technology is a practical way for businesses to combat climate change, where they can also save their green dollars while being green at the same time."
