Energy of the Future



Energy of the Future

Global energy needs are great and will continue to rise along with technological advances and population growth. Alternative energies are being developed, but often with unforeseen negative impacts as a by-product. Many questions remain to be answered:


  • Which technologies will be critical to generate, transmit, and store energy in the future?
  • Can energy be harvested from the environment and humans wearing devices?
  • Will falling costs of geothermal, wind, solar, and biomass energy impact the economic balance of the energy industry?
  • Will scientists be able to improve the capture and storage of the vast amounts of solar energy?
  • Could innovation convert older energy sources into new “green” technology?
  • Will the sources of energy become more diverse or will efficiency improve existing sources to the point that fewer types of energy will be needed?
