The Neo-Carbon Energy world is a radical transformation towards renewable energy and responsible lifestyles. It is a preferred future, empowered by foresight approach and proactive futures creation, resulting in robust futures resilience.
The World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report 2016, developed in collaboration with Zurich Insurance Group and other leading institutions, features scenarios to help companies and organizations examine the trends and driving forces behind future global developments.
The scenarios are based on three possible dystopian futures called: Walled Cities, Strong Regions, and War and Peace.
The 2015 Future Energy Scenarios (FES) explore how the complex energy landscape is changing and analyse how the future might play out.
Great Britain’s energy landscape continues to change at an unprecedented rate. Diversity of supply has increased and globalisation has accelerated, from the international shipping of new sources of gas supplies to the cross border transfer of electricity in Europe.
These scenarios are based on the research conducted
- scans of national and local trends in aging across a wide range of
- an inventory of current Howard County programs and services,
- original research into the possibilities that technology and societal
changes might bring.
Each scenario includes a short vignette describing life in 2035, a list of key
highlights, and a narrative describing what happened between 2015 and
2035. Discussion of the scenarios among Advisory Committee members and
others led to definition of the “preferred future” used as a basis for planning
recommendations in the main body of this report.
The report entitled “The Future of eGovernment” concerns the coming together of
information technology and government policy. These and other factors will together
determine the form and structure of eGovernment in the future. The report presents
future scenarios of what reality may look like in 2016.
The analyses show that scenario studies and other studies of the future that have
already been conducted illustrate that two principal issues recur. The first concerns
how advanced computer usage will be among citizens. Are we moving towards a future
where users will become more advanced and thereby more demanding where eServices
are concerned? Or will such development be hindered?
To help the Dutch gas sector to prepare itself for the next fifty years, what is a robust long-term sustainable strategy?
Will we be able to create sustainable prosperity, or are we on the way to a climate crash? Is the world interconnected or fragmented? Which new technologies shape our everyday lives?
Infrastructure systems play a vital role in economic and social development. Increasingly interdependent, they are a means towards ensuring the delivery of goods and services that promote economic prosperity and growth and contribute to quality of life.
Never before has humanity faced such a challenging outlook for
energy and the planet. This can be summed up in five words:
“more energy, less carbon dioxide”.
To help think about the future of energy, we have developed two scenarios that
