Questions for discussion: 

  • Do you think this energy business would be as successful, without government subsidies?
  • What role should government play in helping emerging enterprises establish themselves?
  • Are subsidies fair to other energy companies?
  • How important is the “global” nature of this business?
  • Why are governments so ready to offer subsidies to this sort of business start-up?
  • What could be a limitation to the long term success of this business?
