Beyond the Power Grid: The Next Generation of Energy Transitions (and the people who will make them happen)
Many people, when they think about “green energy,” have
pictures in their minds of windmills in fields or solar panels atop houses.
Producing cheap and reliable electricity without harmful impacts on air, water
and climate has been a major focus of energy technology research, policy and
business decisions over the course of many decades. After all of that work, the
future will be here soon – developed economies (and even many developing
nations) are greening their electricity supply rapidly. But electricity turns
out to be the easy part of the energy transitions puzzle. The next trillion-dollar
energy transitions – in transportation and industry – will be much more
complicated but will need to start soon, and can piggyback on cleaner
electricity in multiple ways. It will also redefine what it means to work in
the “energy industry” for the next generations of energy professionals.
