Energy use has become wast with new technologies and need for more is still growing. But lower energy use can also be innovative while more advanced.
Low energy use will become the issue in the coming decades. This does not mean we crawl into our huts but develop new ways of using local and less energy while continuing to be globally connected for information and development. This will be one of the continuous issues globally, supporting competition while also promoting ways to develop new methods.
There has been an enormous increase in the global demand for energy in recent years as a result of industrial development and population growth. In the world we use much more energy than we have need for and our ways of managing our lives is far too simple and damaging. New horizons are developing but probably the future will be hard. Science, technology and direction will focus hard on ways to develop new methods of use and control.
