Why Energy & Transportation will be Obsolete by 2030

Tony Seba isn’t a speaker with us at FSA but we love his research and what he says.

His Clean Disruption Keynote presentation at the Swedbank Nordic Energy Summit in Oslo, Norway, March 17th, 2016. The keynote, based on the book ‘Clean Disruption of Energy and Transportation’ assert that four technology categories will disrupt energy and transportation by:

  1. Batteries / Energy Storage
  2. Electric Vehicles
  3. Self-Driving Vehicles
  4. Solar Energy

The outcome of the Clean Disruption is that by 2030

  • All new vehicles will be electric.
  • All new vehicles will be autonomous (self-driving).
  • Oil will be obsolete
  • Coal, natural gas and nuclear will be obsolete
  • 80+ per cent of parking spaces will be obsolete.
  • Individual car ownership will be obsolete.
  • All new energy will be provided by solar (and wind)

Clean Disruption is a technology disruption. Just like digital cameras disrupted film and the web disrupted publishing, Clean Disruption is inevitable and it will be swift.
