Clean Disruption: Energy & Transportation

September 28, 2017 at 9:32 pm | Posted in uncategorized | 4 Comments

I recently gave a short talk on the three aspects of new transportation technology that are coming together to change the industry dramatically – even as far as how we get around. Will “driving” and car ownership be only for serious hobbyists?

In this talk, Tony Seba goes much further plus he explores the changes in the energy sector as well. He shows the science behind the changes underway and how some of this is already happening today. For the most part, the changes mean a cleaner environment and lower cost energy and transportation. But there will be a lot of job changes in the process. Key is that the disruption is not driven by technology, it’s driven by economics.

If you’re drafting a 5 year plan, you need to see this.
