The Future of Energy – Using A New Futurist Tool

A presentation by U.S. Futurist Herb Rubenstein (more details on Herb below) at The Futures Company in London.

For some, the deep drop in energy prices came as a shock.  To others, using the Ecosystem Strengths Analysis Tool, there have been no surprises in the deep drop in the price of oil and gas and the deep drop in the cost of renewables.   

The future landscape for energy is anything but certain.  While we have a global energy market for oil, we only have regional energy markets for natural gas and we only have small area markets for power leading to the creation of many
Power plants.

What will the experience be?

Come and discuss and participate in identifying what the key ecosystems are that will impact:  Energy storage, geothermal, wave technology, offshore wind, oil, gas availability and prices, solar, hydrogen, and power that will be sent by lasers from collecting stations that will exist above the clouds.  

As part of the session we also plan to mash up the output with some other methods, including postcards, to find how things change.

What will you come away with ?

You will come away with a new tool for futurists’ work that will allow you to understand better the ecosystem dynamics that often prove to be the deciding factors as to what the future will bring to us.
