Energy

The history of energy is marked by motion. From the early adoption of wood, wind and water to the more recent adoption of hydrocarbons, societies constantly found new and innovative means to power their ways of life. The future of energy will be no less innovative as renewable energy, storage technologies, nuclear power, efficiency technologies and smart grids become cheaper and more cost-effective. These technologies will not replace hydrocarbons entirely — no more so than hydrocarbons have entirely replaced water — but they will temper the political and economic influence hydrocarbons producers currently have.
