The goal of this blog and the book Global Energy Transformation is to find a way forward in the process of transforming large scale energy systems, including transportation, industrial processes and supply chains.
We need to learn from past experiences of successful industrial transformation and incremental development. In this process we need to create a mutual understanding among economists, environmentalists and peak oil experts of the opportunities and the restrictions for achieving this.
This blog may be somewhat “boring”, because there will be no attempts to make fun of the “others” who hold positions that differ from our own. Because there are no “others” (except if you believe in alien visitors). I recognize that people with different backgrounds hold different views of issues related to energy, economics and the environment for a number of good (and sometimes “bad”, I suppose) reasons. What I will try to achieve is to create common theoretical and practical ground among experts from differend backgrounds.
One of the tools to do this will be to discuss different aspects of change management and how experiences from this field need to be applied in various energy related areas.
