The future of energy is electric and digital. Climate science dictates that it’s the endgame for oil and other fossil fuels, and physics dictates that solar (with smart grid and storage technologies) will replace them.

Energy will become too cheap to meter, and the repercussions to our economic and industrial fabric (including transportation) over the next two decades will be as profound as the impact that new communications and information technology has had on our societies over the previous two decades.

What will surprise everyone is how quickly this transition will occur, how devastating it will be for incumbents, and the magnitude of the opportunity that is transition represents for entrepreneurs.
