What will be the energy sources of the future?

Inspired by the Post Carbon Institute “Think Resilience” free online course. Lesson 2, “Energy”, is packed with food for thoughts:

“Our best bets are solar and wind, but these have very different characteristics from the energy sources that the modern industrial society was built around.”

“For 99% of our History, we lived entirely on renewable energy”

“The Fossil Fuel Age has lasted only one-tenth of one percent of our History as Homo Sapiens. Its last chapter is beginning to unfold right now.”

“Our future may well be slower-paced and localized.”
