Economic Trend Report: Energy Descent, Transition and Alternatives to 2050, by Josh Floyd
Josh Floyd, the Understandascope’s Advisor on energy, systems and societal futures, brings a unique mix of sustainability, foresight and engineering expertise to understanding the energy-economy nexus. He has recently made freely available a report summarising the findings to date from more than a decade’s research.
The report takes a whole-system perspective on the implications of macro-scale transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. Among its findings are that a number of conventional assumptions about energy and economies require significantly further consideration. The brief reference to battery storage in the conclusion provides a notable contrast to the popular view that has gained such momentum in recent months. There’ll be more on that soon.
