Clean Disruption of Energy and Transportation

How Silicon Valley Will Make Oil, Natural Gas, Coal and Conventional Cars Obsolete by 2030

Tony Seba

The industrial age of energy and transportation will stay over by 2030 because electricity the base of the new paradigm has to be efficienly producted, because individually tranposrtation is synonym with liberty. Exponentially improving technologies such as nuclear, electric vehicles, and autonomous (self-driving) cars will disrupt and sweep away the carbonised-energy and transportation industries as we know it. The Stone Age did not end because we ran out of rocks. It ended because a disruptive technology ushered in the Bronze Age. The era of centralized, command-and-control, extraction-resource-based energy sources (oil, gas and coal) will not end because we run out of petroleum, natural gas or coal. It will end because these energy sources, the business models they employ, and the products that sustain them will be disrupted by superior technologies, product architectures, and business models. The same Silicon Valley ecosystem that created bit-based technologies is now creating bit- and electron-based technologies. This is a technology-based disruption reminiscent of how the cell phone, Internet, and personal computer swept away industries such as landline telephony, publishing, and mainframe computers. Just like those technology disruptions flipped the architecture of information and brought abundant, cheap and participatory information, the clean disruption will flip the architecture of energy and bring abundant, cheap and participatory energy. Just like those previous technology disruptions, the clean disruption is inevitable and will be swift. The industrial age of energy and transportation remains but is also giving way to an information technology and knowledge-based energy and transportation era.
