One thing certain, the way we used to produce and consume energy won’t last forever and should dramatically change. Nobody can pretend knowing how the Energy industry will evolve. Having a vision, even partial and not perfect, and sharing it is key to assess and make policy and business choices. Will the energy world be steered by shale gas, nuclear, Energy Efficiency or hydrogen?
Visionaries in energy are numerous (Jeremy Rifkin, David Owen, Jean-Marc Jancovici, Alain Grandjean, and so on). With his Third Industrial Revolution theory, Jeremy Rifkin is certainly the current most popular.
