Energy Future Outlook: …a probable scenario … in the wake of a short history of fossil fuels’ abundance and use (a bleep on a human history radar screen), the following energy future outlook is possible…

1.

Creative adaptation and innovations, with change of societal and human habits and expectations (life could be happier after fossil fuels’ era)

2.

Intelligent hi-tech, local and global energy management in wide sense (to reduce waste, improve efficiency and quality of environment and life)

3.

Nuclear energy and re-electrification for most of stationary energy needs

4.

Cogeneration and integration of power generation and new industry at global scale (to close the cycles at sources thus protecting environment and increasing efficiency)

5.

Energy conservation and regeneration have unforeseen (higher order of magnitude) and large potentials, particularly in industry (also in transportation, commercial and residential sectors)

6.

Renewable biomass and synthetic hydro-carbons for fossil fuel replacement (mobile energy, transportation, and chemicals)

7.

Advanced energy storage (synthetic fuels, advanced batteries, hydrogen,…)

8.

Redistributed solar-related and other renewable energies (to fill in the gap…)
